This fire was no accident - no, this fire started with a match. (h/t Michelle Shocked)

This time of year, the woods and not-so-woods are full of lots of tinder-dry easily burnable material. It's possible this fire was caused by Those Darn Kids lighting fires in the woods, but a burning butt thrown from a moving car will do the job just as well, and there are so many of those. Smokers, dispose of your butts responsibly. That means use the ashtray in your car: it's your trash, you're responsible for it. DO NOT treat the world as your ashtray.
