Spontaneous combustion of manure at ranch starts big California fire

These self-starting manure fires are apparently all too common Southern California when it gets hot-

Well . . . another negative side effect of ranching!  Oh, and the location of the ranch where the fire began was kept a secret.

Story in the LA Times.

    Red meat is so unhealthy that it should be banned. The fires started this way are a disgrace.

    So is Ben and Jerry’s ban it too? Are you opposed to freedomin general or only when it suits your beliefs?

    I have lived in Calif for 50 years and this is the first I have ever heard of a wildland fire being caused by spontaneous manure fire in this state. Perhaps because CA has stricter environmental standards that are applied to livestock operations one side benefit is the prevention of most such fires.
