Sooke Fire tends to second fire incident Monday May 9 — 3 Comments

    • Great question! Most nature-induced fires start with lightening, which we almost never get here. Over half of all forest fires are human inspired. Last year, The Sooke fire department showed how quickly a small smolder can spread and grow in mere minutes. So, yeah, cigarette butts can cause forest fire. Not too sure how this one happened. Communications have been diminished. -Britt

  1. Cigarette butts and lightening? Amazing how many lightening started fires we have in Sooke on clear sunny days on the side of the road.
