If you really just want fragments to be logged

use the rule (untested - may need some syntax help

alert ip any any -> any any (msg: "frags... yawn"; fragbits: M+;)
alert ip any any -> any any (msg: "frags2... yawn"; fragoffset: >0;)

If firestorm is just alerting on a incomplete fragment, it's not
something that I've heard a good argument for considering the number
of times that will happen on boxes that people install 2 or 3 pcap
apps on.
