Oh, Yeah? Well Remember That Time You Almost Wiped Out California?

If this is true, this kid is NEVER going to live this one down.

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. - Officials blamed a wildfire that consumed more than 38,000 acres and destroyed 21 homes last week on a boy playing with matches, and said they would ask a prosecutor to consider the case.

The boy, whose name and age were not released, admitted to sparking the fire on Oct. 21, Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Diane Hecht said Tuesday. Ferocious winds helped it quickly spread.
"He admitted to playing with matches and accidentally starting the fire," Hecht said in a statement.

The boy was released to his parents, and the case will be presented to the district attorney's office, Hecht said. It was not clear if he had been arrested or cited by detectives.


It sounds like I'm making light of the situation over in California, but I'm not. Considering this child probably has severe mental issues to be starting a fire this big? Yeah. I'm just trying to find some levity amidst the flames.
