Firstly it is very hard to find one who deliberately started the forest fire.
And if the guilty one is found, he/she should be fined (heavily) or should be prisoned or should be given ordered to serve in fire department for some time , so that he/she could learn a lesson that how difficult it is to stop uncontrollable fires.

First of all, I think it’s actually a crime to start a forest fire. The “ARSON” causing a fire is a serious crime and people who commit the guilty of arson should be sent to prison. However, a fire happened might cause great damage or deaths. Forest fires which were sometimes caused on purpose are extensive and take a lot of time. A forest fire is really more difficult to extinguish than a general fire for firefighters. I think, we know that people who start forest fires should be dealt with now.

First of all, a forest fire means that it is any uncontrolled fire that occurs in the wilderness. It always causes a great damage on forest. It means “Arson.”
People who commit the guilty of the arson should be sent to prison.
However, a fire happened might cause great damages or deaths and it ruins everything. Forest fires which are sometimes caused on purpose are extensive and take a lot of time.
It is more difficult to extinguish forest fire for firefighters. To sum up, I think, we all know that people who start a forest fire should be dealt with now.

If he intended for setting the forest on fire, I think he/she deserve to be killed as he could have killed many animals and even humans.
I'm posting to improve my English. If you see any grammar/vocabulary mistake in my post, please let me know.

I don't know why a person deliberately wants to start a fire! It's unacceptable and it doesn't have reasonable reasons!

I think someone who starts a forest fire can be motivated in two ways: economically or mental illness. In the first case the solution is to be a long time in prison and force them to clear forests during his imprisonment. The second case should have a medical response.

They should be dealth strictly because they are the reason for the natural and local asset destruction. And there is a good income from the forest to a government.
