The fire in the Reichstag was NOT a false-flag operation, although the Nazis exploited it as much as they could.
No, the Nazis knew that the Communist was going to try to burn down the Reichstag and they let him do it. They saw him go in a set a number of little fires all around the inside of the building. Then the Nazis arrested him and went in with extremely flammable materials like some sort of kerosene, sprayed it around the place and created an inferno. The multiple small fires set by the Communist would have caused only trivial damage to the building.
Some sort of accelerant had been used in very large quantities, and the Communist did not bring any accelerant with him and did not use to set his fires.
The Communist was taken away, tortured, imprisoned and quickly executed.
