Good news. Thank you humans for rejuvenating the grasslands with another fire. Fire is good for the grasslands. Next time wait until it's a little wetter before doing that though.

From what I've heard, they already know who has been setting these fires. People on Nighthawk have lost their homes! How many more fires does this lowlife need to set before getting charged and put away? Hopefully it doesn't take someone getting injured or losing their life.

Fire is good for the grasslands. It's not good in the urban interface areas which is where this fire was located. Intentionally set or accidentally, it is said to have been human caused. This is pretty scary for the residents who live along the NE edges of the Lakes. (East Ridge Drive - Parkside Cresent)
