Premature Conflaguration

Burning Man came a few days early.

BLACK ROCK CITY, Nevada -- Flames engulfed Burning Man's giant namesake sculpture five days early during a rare total lunar eclipse early Tuesday. Fire crews put the fire out, while onlookers cheered. Details remain sketchy at this time, although there have been unconfirmed reports of arson or a possible electrical malfunction. One person was arrested, according to a story in the Reno Gazette-Journal.

OK, here's the perp!

Paul Addis, 35, of San Francisco, was booked into the Pershing County, Nev., jail on suspicion of arson, illegal possession of fireworks, destruction of property and resisting a public officer, according to the sheriff's department. He posted a $25,632 bond, a sheriff's dispatcher said.

An arsonist at Burning Man, what are the chances?

My prediction is his defence will be it was a total eclipse of the heart!
