Fake Weatherman Arrested For Starting Wildfire

A Kentucky man was arrested after he intentionally started a wildfire in order to get Facebook views. Yup you read that right, someone out there wanted to be a weather man so badly that he started his own wildfire so he could report about it to his Facebook friends in order to get views and attention. I have heard of people doing strange things for attention, but this is not only strange but extremely dangerous.

The man arrested was Johnny Mullins who is a Kentucky resident. There were also wildfire outbreaks in North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee. Authorities suspect that arson may of been the reason for up to 20 of these wildfires.
