I just read through about 20 articles on-line and the only reference i could find to how the fire started was that it is human caused and under investigation. It has been an extremely dry spring so campfires, car exhaust, dropped cigs are all possible causes and could have been perpetrated by anyone.
Ranchers have been using undocumented migrants as a scapegoat for everything under the sun for some time now.
Necessities, I would think would be first and foremost: water.
the other day i was JOKING to my wife that i'll bet we'll hear someone claim the fire was started by some tuberculosis-carrying illegal immigrants in an anchor-baby camp...
Stirring up the liberal bias on this site is much more fun than playing with matches.
Oh Yea, almost mised the real story.
It was the ranchers burning down their subsidized federal grazing land just so they could blame it on illegals to get attention for their right-wing agenda.
This whole thread cracks me up.
