Carr fire cause

I had been wondering what the “vehicle mechanical failure” was that caused the fire that has so far destroyed over 135,000 acres around Redding. The answer? A flat tire. Rim scrapes asphalt, throws sparks into dry brush, whoosh.

In other news, the Mendocino Complex fire is up to 229,000 acres.
