I'd wager a month's pay that the BLM/Navy investigation results in no negligence charges against the arsonists. If the fire had been started by a negligent civilian, I'm sure the wrath of the controlling agencies would come down hard - at least restitution of the hundreds of thousands of dollars spent fighting the fire, and even perhaps criminal prosecution. Ahh, the acts we overlook and forgive in the name of national defense/homeland defense. Go, Navy!
