This 10/25/10 fire appears to have started due to improperly discarded matches.
This fire on 10/20/10 was caused by a palm frond falling on a power line. The palm frond caused the palm tree to catch fire and then fall to the ground igniting heavy pine straw debris on the ground. The fire burned up into the trees to about 20 feet.
This 8/16/10 fire was caused by unattended grilling on a wooden deck. The resident was cooking meat in a smoker on his wooden deck. He was inside the residence when he saw the deck on fire. The deck was old and extremely dry. The smoker was old and the bottom rusted through allowing the hot coals to fall on the deck. The fire was stopped before it spread to the home. The deck, smoker and the meat were a total loss.
