A part of me wishes I was living in a nightmare, and then I just wake up, I’m still only 12 years old, and I realize this world we live in really isn’t all that weird.
Because, it’s really fuckin’ weird…
Forest fires have absolutely been wreaking havoc across California for quite some time now, and we’ve seen the causes go from climate change to botched baby gender reveals.
But the reasoning for the Fawn Fire, current raging in Shasta County California is a strange one.
According to CBS, the latest forest fire in Shasta Lake, California that burned 8,577 acres and destroyed more than 144 homes and structures was started by…
A woman who was trying to boil bear urine to drink.
Of course, that went wrong (believe it or not), and the Cal Fire officer who arrested the woman also believes that she started a separate vegetation fire the night before she tried to boil bear piss.
“She said that didn’t work so she attempted to make a fire to boil the water. She stated it was too wet for the fire to start. She said she drank the water anyway and then continued walking uphill from the creek bed.”
The good news is that according to police documents, fire departments were able to get this fire under control quicker than most due to cooler temperatures and a bit of rain. And while they’re not out of the woods yet (no pun intended), the fire is now 60% contained.
