Open Fire In Colliery Dams Park ---------


Colliery Dams Park

The other day while taking a stroll through Colliery Dams Park I came across what is clearly a very bad idea given the extreme dry we are experiencing this spring. (My grass is already starting to brown out, and some shrubs are showing stress for lack of water).

Obviously someone wanted to warm their toes, or toast marshmallows or some such idea by burning an open fire very close to tinder dry brush. The Fort Mac fire might actually put a sharp point on the danger associated with setting fires in the woods. Clearly not everyone got the memo.

A change in the weather indeed has something to do with the drier conditions, but it is just plain human stupidity that can start the fire that can be disastrous.
