  1. Who started the vegetation fire? They don’t start by themselves! I know the area and it has a lot of houses there. Was this started by another arsonist? That’s all we need with very hot weather expected this coming week. Keep your water hoses ready.

    • Fires here are started by the homeless bums! They have nothing to lose, so they want make sure others are in the same boat!
