There is nothing to say but that this is totally unacceptable and irresponsible.    This fire was set last night, intentionally or not, by a person reportedly around 6KM up Comox Main road past Beaver Creek.

We are in the middle of August and even though we have had some cool and moist weather, the fire danger remains at Moderate and is expected to go to High in the next day or two.  There is no excuse for this.

Please be safe out there.
