I heard that on the beattle project in the grande cache area there was a little escaping burn pile fire that went for a few days....hahaha or maybe one of the bored pilots payed off a forestry dude to let it get away for some sport!


I do know they had a fair bit of iron on it for those few days anyway..just a teaser!
