When most people think wildfires, they think of lightning strikes, campfires and cigarettes as the usual culprits, but there are others that may surprise some people.
This year, crews are preparing for a long fire season.
According to the One Less Spark campaign, things that can spark a fire include:
- Hanging chains on a vehicle
- Low tire pressure
- Old brakes
- Vehicles parked to close to high vegetation
- Rocks in dry grass or weeds
