A BURNING DESIRE FOR EXCITEMENT BY MARK S. WARNICK, POST-GAZETTE STAFF WRITER With skill and a little luck, firefighters can arrive on the scene minutes after a blaze starts. In this Fayette County river town, there was a problem. A few of the firefighters have been accused of being there minutes before the flames and smoke. In recent months, state police have arrested four members of the Dawson Volunteer Fire Department and charged them with arson. A fifth firefighter has been granted immunity by the Fayette County district attorney's office. Investigators spent four years examining 25 suspicious fires before filing charges. The firefighters, several of them lifelong friends, were linked to eight incidents, police said. The investigation is continuing, although no other suspects have been targeted. ``Arson is one of the hardest crimes to prove, unless you actually see someone set it,'' said Trooper Tomm Lazar of the state police Uniontown barracks, himself a volunteer firefighter in Rostraver. ``It takes a lot of legwork and interviewing.'' The fires occurred during a 13-month period beginning in January 1991. In one case, a witness spotted two men leaving a hillside near where a fire had just started. Both men were wearing jackets with the name ``Dawson Fire Department'' on the back. The defendants ranged in age from 17 to 24 when the series of arsons began. Most of the fires were set at vacant buildings, although one blaze at a large garage in nearby Perryopolis destroyed or severely damaged 16 vehicles. No one was injured in the fires. ``I think it was just so they could answer the fire calls and be the hero,'' Lazar said. ``In most of your arson cases, it's self-gratification.'' One defendant, Aaron Stokes, 30, pleaded guilty to arson and criminal conspiracy. He was sentenced last month to four to 23 months in prison. Another firefighter, Mark Virgillio, 22, was granted immunity after agreeing to testify against the other defendants, whose trials are pending. Among those charged was Brian Hone, 22, the son of the Dawson fire chief. In one arson at a wood barn, Virgillio said, he was at the Dawson Fire Hall one afternoon with Stokes and Hone, when the three men left in Virgillio's pickup truck. ``We wanted to go out and find a place to burn,'' Virgillio said. After the fire was set and the siren blared at the fire hall, the trio returned to the barn on the firetruck to fight the blaze, he said. ``It wasn't to get away with it,'' Virgillio said, explaining the motive for the arsons. ``It was for something to do. We was all laid off from work and, I don't know, young kids have something to do all the time.'' Virgillio, who testified for the prosecution at Hone's preliminary hearing, said he and Hone had been good friends since they were 7 years old. Hone has proclaimed his innocence. ``Brian didn't do this, and I think in the end that will come out,'' said his father, David Hone, chief of the 43-member department. ``It seems to me these other people were trying to use him to better their bargaining position.'' Throughout the borough, population 535, the charges have stunned and disappointed residents. Most of them know the defendants or their parents or grandparents, if not all three generations. ``I just don't understand why they would do something like that,'' Mayor John Leonard said. ``It's had a dramatic effect. People can't believe it.'' In Dawson, once a thriving railroad and coal community along the Youghiogheny River, the volunteer fire department plays a unique role. It protects the community, assists during floods and other emergencies, holds Christmas and Halloween parties for kids and provides social activities for adults, such as the bingo games every Tuesday night at the fire hall. ``Our fire company does so much more than fight fires,'' said Mary Jane Winterhalter, the borough secretary. ``Anytime we need help, we always go to the fire department.'' The Dawson Volunteer Fire Department was started 99 years ago, serving a borough that in the early 1900s boasted as many as 60 businesses along Main and Railroad streets. Dawson once had five hotels and an opera house, its residents steadily employed by jobs with the railroad or local coal and coke companies. When those industries began declining in the 1950s, Main and Railroad streets started losing their luster. Today, there's a grocery store, used-car lot, service station, funeral home and bar. Borough officials excitedly point out that a local physician soon will hold office hours in Dawson one day a week. The fire department, whose members come from Dawson and surrounding communities, serves all of Lower Tyrone. When fires are reported, the siren at the fire hall blares for three minutes, audible throughout the borough and across the Youghiogheny River. In the wake of the arrests, the department has continued its operations without interruption. It receives about 100 emergency calls a year for everything from fires to traffic accidents and flooding. ``Of course it's a blow, but we have to deal with it,'' said Frank Lamanna, 75, a volunteer firefighter since 1940. ``We have emergencies we have to handle.'' Last weekend, more than 20 Dawson firefighters helped fight a blaze at a mobile home in Dickerson Run, just across the Youghiogheny River. While they await trials, Brian Hone and another defendant, Earl B. Ansell, 24, remain members of the department. ``If they're convicted, we need to take action,'' Lamanna said. ``They're not convicted. They're accused.'' Virgillio, who was granted immunity by prosecutors, has been expelled from the department. Stokes and the fourth defendant, Edward J. Chaney, 24, moved from the area and no longer are Dawson firefighters. Lamanna, a 56-year member of the department, said the arrests ``dropped the morale some'' among firefighters. Publicity about the arsons also has been damaging in the community, he said. Donations received during door-to-door collections, representing about one-third of the department's funding, were down 50 percent from previous years, he said. ``There's no doubt that this had a bad effect on the department's reputation,'' said Leonard, the mayor. National fire officials said no one was certain how many firefighters are arsonists and that the number of known cases was relatively small, considering there are more than 1 million paid and volunteer firefighters across the country. Still, the issue has been serious enough to have been studied by the FBI and the National Volunteer Fire Council, a nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C. ``The predominant motive found was excitement,'' said Timothy Huff of the FBI's National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime. ``This is particularly true for the groups of youthful firefighter arsonists.'' In Dawson, what might have been excitement for a few firefighters has led to other emotions in town. ``I think it's sad, for one thing,'' said Patricia Lint, president of both the borough council and the local historical society. ``There is a good faction of the fire department that is hurt by all this. ``I just wish it were over,'' Lint said. ``But it won't be over for a while.''

I would have to see the balance sheet but it seems better then some of the other stunts Fay-Penn pulls. Like building crappy roads and letting the township an taxpayers pay for repairs, lighting and snow removal. At least our supervisors do not roll over for Fay-Penn.

The supervisors also approved an addendum to the development agreement with the Fay-Penn Economic Development Council. Witt said Fay-Penn has asked to consolidate lots in the as-yet undeveloped Dunbar Industrial Park in order to reduce the taxes on the property. The lots would be subdivided once two are sold and buildings are constructed. In exchange for the reduced tax bill, Witt said, Fay-Penn would maintain the roads in the industrial park until at least two lots are built out.

PRAY that thru True Conversion of Heart sinners,may come to their senses and turn to JESUS. IT is so sad that for the most part people only come to their knees in sickness, sufferings and disasters, yet I really think that if these were not permitted that many Hearts and Souls would have been eternally lost.
