    • We have enough problems in our area with lightning strikes. But this fire is human caused by a man driving a truck into dry grass while delivering fertilizer to his illegal marijuana grow. Insult to injury, his bail was only 10K. So far 8 homes are lost several more threatened. Multiple injuries. Thankfully no deaths so far. This morning the official report is 8,700 acres and growing.
