I live in the High Drive area

I live in the High Drive area and saw the fire firsthand. It was terrifying. Thank God for all the firefighters. That fire could have gotten WAY out of hand. My Dad and step mom are evacuated up in Livermore. Worried to death for them. All of this is also making me wonder if several units will cancel big game seasons. I urge everyone going out into the wilderness to be extra extra careful and watch your kids closely.

The way that things are going

The way that things are going this year here in the west you are not even going to want to think of lighting anything outside of you home. 

Besides what Colorado has burning Utah has a number of fires also with at least one of them being blamed of shooters using exploding targets.  But the claim is that there have been around 20 set by target shooters either using tracer ammo or by sparks from firing rounds by dry grass.  I know a couple of years ago a county sheriff tried to start a fire by shooting rounds into rocks and dry grass but he never accomplished it but there is always the chance.
