In the large school survey reported by Cotterall et al. , just for fun, to see what would happen, boredom). Being angry or wanting to hurt someone were given by < 10% of the sample. Interestingly, 30% of these children reported one reason, 24% reported two reasons, and the rest reported between three and seven reasons for their fires.
