Man poses as fake firefighter; starts blaze so he can help put it out

Joseph Michael Brannen had always dreamed of being a firefighter, but it seems like his plans have gone up in smoke.


Brannen, 18, is in trouble after police say that he admitted to purposely starting a fire at his local library, so he could help put it out.


The Fire occurred in early July in Florida and investigators immediately suspected foul play when they arrived on the scene and saw a man later identified as Brannen decked out in firefighter gear.


Brannen was not allowed to go near the fire.


During a interview, he admitted to starting the blaze in hopes of helping the professional firefighters.
