I wouldn't be too quick to jump to conclusions on that one. There were a number of hits out that way a week ago and I'm still seeing the holdovers coming to life daily. Being close to the road is enough to make me go hmm... However there was another one that popped up yesterday 12 km from there and it's already being called lightning because it's nowhere near a road.

Be patient - they'll get the cause figured out in short time.

I took a drive out there last week, and there were campers cutting wood a click further from Bear Paw.
All along that stretch there were folks camping/boondocking.
Maybe you haven't noticed, but many of the still mobile homeless, have moved to the bush, full time. Take a trip up Carmi - and explore the side roads past Lost Moose, for an education.
