I know how easy it is to be a little...let's say "casual" about things like making sure your campfire is all the way out or leaving it unattended for a while so you can go fishing. The same holds true if you are a smoker and you flick your cigarette on the ground or out the window of your car. Hey, most of the time you can get away with something like that...but not right now!This entire part of the western United States (Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Nebraska, Kansas etc) have had the driest March in HISTORY! The conditions that fire loves, are all around us...it's potentially the perfect storm setup for wildfires. Don't forget to factor in the winds that we normally get...and a small fire can turn into a monster in seconds!

There have been 2 deaths and possibly more to come, resulting from a fire just west of Denver in the last few days. I found this video and thought I would share it with you. Smokey the Bear has his hands full right now and asked me to help him spread the word. Please be careful with fire, the life you save may be your own!
