It only takes a flick of a cigarette or a spark from a lighter.

Keep safe by reporting any sign of smoke smell/sight and remove/trim dry brush from residence.

California is running low on water, don't waste it.

Couple of years back, I saw a woman in her MB suv pull off the road on Foothill to conduct some self absorbing business. Her cell phones a blazin, paper a flyin, pens a jottin. Looked like a shoe sale at Nordstroms in there. Anywho, after this clown wrapped up the sale of some McMansion in E.Poshville, she pulls away in a hurry. No, she didnt notice that high grass she parked in was a smolder'n. Soon it became a 10X10 fire. I hopped of my bike and hurried to stamp out the small flames. I bet it took me 20 minutes to finally snuff the last of a 20 x 20 fire. i had heard of stories of catalytic converters igniting fires, and i am hear to attest that these rumors may be true
