    Maybe the fire was caused by an illegal camping out. Or by an illegal growing pot on public land? We have to be very wary of illegals. There is no end to their depredations.

    Be vigilant! Stand Tall.

    Idiot-caused? Otherwise, how does a fire starthere?
    Was there any lightning in the area?
