Life shows that one careless match can start a forest fire, while it takes a whole box to start a campfire...
With rare exceptions, forest fires are started by humans.. by the end of July 2019 Russia declared a state of emergency in two regions of Siberia as wildfires as flames engulfed an area the size of Belgium...
I have to agree with Leo the devastation loss of property some life is horrible.

That is a bit too close me thinks!

another thought--- once while walking I smelled smoke and noticed a tree burning --way too high for human intervention-- The Fire Company took care of it and said it was caused by lightning during a recent storm---
