They decide that friction is what causes fire and eliminate the possibility that heat does.
Actually friction caused heat, which started the fire. You fail.
Also things can catch flame from just heat alone, with no need for friction to begin with. (Apparently you've never read the book Fahrenheit 451) From this you can actually eliminate friction as the cause. Fuck yeah, science and logic FTW!
