With all those fires going on the east side of Oklahoma County, someone has to be setting them.
I hope they burn themselves someday.

I just heard about them this morning and I'm heading to Midwest City in a couple of hours. Anyone know where these fires are located/likely to spread?

Probably someone chunking thier smokes out the window. But I wouldn't put it past some punk-idiot to start some fires for shits and giggles..

A few years ago..I was cruising down I-240..and about every mile was a grass fire in the ditch..complete with firetrucks putting them out. Then came across a semi-truck in the ditch with a trailer wheel bearing out....He'd been inadvertantly starting the fires by shooting red-hot ball bearings out in the ditch..

The big one that went through western Midwest City and a good chunk of Choctaw was started by a few kids in a field across the street from Carl Albert Junior High.

The one in my area started the same way they usually do. Some ignorant hillbilly was doing a "controlled burn" which consisted of him walking a line with a road flare then going back inside and watching some T.V.

I wish there was more that could be done in the punishment department.

Last year they caught a fireman starting fires around here Should have put the SOB down like a rabid dog.

Then again I think we should put down ALL fire bugs.

It wasn't too long ago my aunt in Choctaw died. Two years ago? A month later my uncle has his house burn down along with dozens of others in the Choctaw area.
When it started up in Harrah this time, he said to hell with it and went to the casino.
If those fires were started on purpose, I hope the arsonist gets what is coming to him.
FWIW, those tail draggin' low riders have been known to set them from the sparks when they drop their bed frames to the ground.
Intentional and not intentional at the same time.
Poor judgment has definitely started quite a few fires.
