BD, Actually the fire was started by lawn mower/tractor. . They were doing fire abatement. Don’t always be so quick to judge. I was working near the school when it started.

We need more firefighters. East CC Fire will not go into structures if no human is inside (animals do not count) starting 7/1. Fireworks are all over the place & grass is dry. This is not good.

While this particular fire was caused by a lawn mower, the majority of the fires are caused by arsonists and they should be arrested if found.
For two months now, I’ve been hearing and seeing illegal fireworks and fire crackers go off in several neighborhoods and in the open space areas.
The idiots are doing this in the afternoon and all hours of the night and early morning.
It’s annoying as hell and irritating to dogs who are afraid, and individuals with PTSD and anxiety.
I wish people would stop being so damn inconsiderate…..
Get a hobby!!!

Half of my house in PH burnt down in 2019. Asbestos and water damage ruined a lot more. Please be careful.

I live right near the fire. Can the people with the cell phones please get out of the way when the firefighters are trying to do their job. Some of the people were right on the edge of the fire and the police had use their loud speaker to tell them to get out of the way. Do you really need to take photos?
