Unhappy Someone is trying to burn my city down. >:(

There have been SO MANY wildfires in Colorado recently. A new one started this morning, and my family has told me they can see the flames on the hillside. The police department has released information that says someone is starting these fires ON PURPOSE. Apparently they've put out 6 different smaller fires in the past 2 hours, but they can't control all of them that get started. Honestly, who would do such a horrible thing? All the wildlife, all the hiking trails, all the homes burned… Makes me want to take a louisville slugger to their face. The police say they're offering big cash rewards for anyone who knows who is starting them.

Why?

That's ridiculous! I hope you find him before the police do. We have a very big fire danger this year in the black hills due to the pine beetle killing all of our pine trees. sadly its only a matter of time before some tourist goes and burns a whole mountain down...

The haze is from the smoke, both from a fire up north, a fire further south and this newer one on the hill. The first picture is from my parents out their back window. The second picture is just a couple minutes ago in the car, usually you can see the outline of the trees on the mountain and everything. :/

I don't understand why people find thrill in doing such a thing. Think of all the animals that are probably caught in that. Not to mention the danger it puts people and their homes in.

Sending safe wishes your way!
