Eventually, he became a fire cptain and one of Southern California's most renown serial arson investigators, successfully apprehending a string of petty arsonists.

When the fire lover made a mistake and left a fingerprint behind, investigators were stunned to discover that it belonged to none other than investigator John Orr!
