Well looks like we have a fire bug running loose, if anyone sees it, step on it for me.

Yesterday we get called out to mutual aid a neighboring department. 8 seperate wildfires at virtually the same time, it took 13 departments most of the day to get them all out. Conservation estimated the size to be between 220 and 240 acres. Luckily no houses were lost but one lady did suffer a stroke during the incident. Yes I know it is not huge news to everyone else, but to us it is a warning. Our area's call volume is WAY up, looks like we have a busy year ahead of us.
