There are two types of arson:

(1) pathological arson and

(2) arson for financial gain.

Arsonists who have a pathological desire to burn things generally have that to rationalize their actions -

 they "can't help themselves". Arsonists who do it for financial gain tend to be insurance scammers who don't do it too often, for risk of getting caught. And most are caught anyway.
