A mysterious string of arson related fires has Firehouse forty five working over time.
Heroes to their city, the good men and women of the 45th have no idea they harbor thieves in their midst. It's the perfect cover for the perfect crime, and the tight knit crew manning rig #1 have no compunction against igniting the infernos they fail to contain in order to gain access to jewels, cash, priceless artwork and, more importantly secrets, which just... vanish in a puff of smoke.
Use of accelerants after the thefts guarantee that no evidence of the crimes remain. The personal information garnered is used as political and judicial blackmail/extortion leverage for the criminal organization they actually work for.

They bite off more than they can chew when they target the building which, 64 year old soon-to-retire maintenance superintendent/ex Navy Seal, Frank Merchant is caretaker of.

Language, violence and nudity.
Viewer discretion is advised.

       I vote Esperanto, replace the violence with cutting asides and is that male, female or them Mexican hairless dogs nudity? Just asking...   

       Just wondering what do pickpockets do when they inadvertently sneak into a nudists camp?

       //What does this have to do with the flashpoint of paper?//   

       I came up with the title after I had written the idea as a play on words.
I re-wrote the idea to fit it.
  

       ...a pickpocket in a nudist colony gets bare minimum wages.   

       Would that mean that everyone would be feeling the pinch, then ?

       Yes, but a good divestigator could expose every one of them.
