There are a few cases in history of ancient pyromaniacs here, as well as pyromania in literature, theatre, movies and fine arts :

One well known case of pyromania is from John Orr, a former fire captain who is thought to be responsible for setting over 10,000 fires. Here's his bio:

and here is a documentary that mentions him and pyromania in detail:
