    Is it legal to burn down a house if you own it and have no loan on it? If it is, Im burning this place to the ground today.

    No. Sorry. Arson is a crime regardless.

    So is insurance fraud...

    But if you don't have insurance- Bulldozers are another story tho. Just a citation if you don't get a permit in advance.

    I'll help.

    You can't put firefighters lives in danger, but you can throw someone's stuff out the window. I'm not sure if you can start a small fire and burn that.

    Yeah, it's illegal. But tearing it down is perfectly legal as long as you don't claim the loss for insurance money. It's your house.....

    Janet... you mean you have THREE emergencies going on at once? I've figured out two of them, but... man alive, lady. Lay off on the crises or you'll kill yourself.
