Likely human-caused. There are lots of little trails up there. Should they find the careless person that started this fire, they should set his house on fire and give him a kiddie pool of water and a teacup with which to fight it.

That is wrong saying that, if it is human caused then i hope they find the person or persons and charge them.

As I see it:

If a person causes or creates a forest fire, some or all the costs of putting out that forest fire, should be charged to idiot that started the fire.

Maybe you can't fix stupid, but you can drain its bank account.

It's 100% contained. It burned about 0.2 hectares, pretty tiny. They knocked it down quickly.

One would think that the 2012 fire just on the opposite side of Pincushion served as an example.

Start serving those $1,000,000 fines the government is talking about!
