Outrageous

Who Started the California Wildfires?

There's a group of students in California that Smokey the Bear is none to pleased with. According to Los Angeles police, ten 18 to 22-year-olds are responsible for the wildfire that torched the tony town of Montecito, destroying 210 homes and threatening scores more. Among the affected were Oprah Winfrey and Rob Lowe, whose homes escaped damage, and Christopher Lloyd, who wasn't as lucky. The students, who face charges of negligence and recklessness with fire, said they thought they'd put out the bonfire that started it all. Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said, "It appears this was the result of carelessness."
