I think there was a missed opportunity with starting the story thereā€”it could have been a great source of tension, but the fact that all the characters immediately knew it was Izzy who had started the fire and that they weren’t surprised (i.e. that it didn’t seem out of character for Izzy to do something like that) meant that there was nowhere to go and no questions posed for the reader.
