Actually if it's like drivers who get reported for traffic infractions, they are sent a nasty letter and name kept on file. Also if you can prove they threw a butt that started a fire,they could be charged and that could be a large financial loss for them.

Ya that's right while were at it lets blame smokers for global warming. Who knew smoke were so sensitive, theyre right up there with senior citizens and the high cost of medical expenses they drain from the system.

One thing that EVERYONE can do in order to prevent any number of local and forest fires is to adopt the idea that IF YOU LIGHT A FIRE (whether it be cigarette size or campfire) YOU AND ONLY YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR COMPLETELY EXTINGUISHING IT.

Also NEVER LEAVE OR DISCARD ANY REFLECTIVE ARTICLES OF ANY TYPE OUTSIDE OF YOUR HOME. Consider anything glass, especially shaped glass, to be equivalent to an ever burning match.

LOL, you should write a book on the art of deflecting away from the issues at hand, you have it mastered.!! well done.

Not sensitive at all , just sick and tired of the anti smoking whiners spewing non stop drivel every chance they get at smokers, and worse yet lumping them all into the same category.

Russia ? :-)
Agreed about throwing the smoke out the window at any time.!
It's the constant lumping all smokers into the same category that gets tiring.
It's the constant talking down your nose to smokers like we're second class citizens because we smoke.

The supposed first resident on scene said:
“So here’s the cigarette, it took off, and he said he didn’t know which 30 feet to try to put out, and while he was thinking of it, it’s too late, the trees started to candle. So that’s how fast it was.”

I find it really hard to believe that some random resident seen the fire and immediately pinpointed the exact cigarette butt that started the fire, among burning grass on the side of a hill, think about it, would one really be looking for a cigarette butt, or would one be more interested in calling someone or getting out of there?

Yet you seem to be painting all smokers with the same brush.

Uh oh, I'm not agreeing with your view point. Guess I'm another "sensitive smoker".

Right ... If you say so.

But I'm not ignorant to the fact that smoking ISN'T the only way a human caused forest fire can start.

My "sensitivity" isn't as much of a fire hazard as complete ignorance is.

You sound like one of those "reformed" non smokers.
