Moorland Fire

When I saw this news item I couldn't believe it.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-26725029
After all the rain we've had over the past few months I thought no moorland could be dry enough to burn.

Re: Moorland Fire

Probably a final heather/moor burn that got out of hand before the season ends in April

Re: Moorland Fire

We had this near us after the 100+Mph winds and storms last month when all of West Wales was soaked and battered. Caused by downed power lines IIRC.
[edit]Looking at that picture, and how liner that fire is, I'd guess it's the same cause too[/edit]
