Apparently we left for vacation two days before this blaze started and we heard nothing about it until I went riding up there this past Sunday and noticed all the burnt trunks and orange puddles.
A quick search of the local rag brought up this http://www.theprogress.com/news/390742351.html hardly informative, but I guess since it doesn't involve Farmer Fred and his 80 year old tractor, or a tunnel for toads...it's not gonna get much press.
Interest: hiking, biking, running, kayaking, scrambling, snowshoeing, backpacking and ice-skating.
Hi Mark, the fire was caused by target shooters. Tried to find an interview for you with some people from the CRV who heard shots going off before the fire started. Some of Slesse Park was on evacuation alert but the fire crews managed to get it out quickly, within a few days if I recall correctly.
