Wildfires May Have Been Human Set

Investigators are searching for clues to the starting of the Station Fire in Los Angeles County. So far,  most evidence points strongly to the possibility of the fire being set by a human.

If this were true, it would not be a great surprise. Most Southern California wildfires are set by careless or sick humans. Lightning is so rare in this region that it is not often a factor.

Every year western states struggle with and spend billions on fire fighting and suppression. As with this year, during many seasons, property and lives are lost. Sometimes these lives are of fire fighters and sometimes of residents.

Already this year, and fire season has hardly begun, two fire fighters have lost their lives in the Station blaze.

Here is an article on recent Southern California blazes and the search for causes of the wildfires.
