Wildfire Season

Wildfire season had an early start on the high desert yesterday with the Cougar Butte wildfire. This is the earliest wildfire I’ve seen since we moved here 16 years ago. They haven’t stated the cause of the fire yet, but being that we had a lot of snow this year, a cool, wet spring, and no lightning storms in the area, my bet is that it was human caused.

  1. Sad if it is a deliberate fire……I know wild fires can at the right time and place be a help to the eco system but vandalism doesn’t help. Spring is now starting to turn to summer over here in the UK. The year moves on 🙂

  2. I’ve never understood the attraction of lighting fires. And when you see the devastation wild-fires cause, what sort of moron would risk causing that. Stay safe.

I'd love to hear from you
