Orange Country, CA is no stranger to the brush fire. According to some experts, over 90% of brush fires are caused by humans. Natural occurrences, such as lightening, account for the remainder. When were talkin’ human causes, we’re talkin’ pyromania, careless use of smokes, arson…that sort of thing.
Oh yeah, and golf.
OC Fire Authority Captain Greg McKeown said Monday that a golfer probably set off a 12-acre blaze when his club chipped a rock. Seriously. This isn’t a joke. HERE’S the story.
So how long before the environmentalist whackos try to shut down the PGA? “Save the shrubs…put away the clubs! Save the shrubs…put away the clubs!”
