Why should I take care with fire?
Most wildfires are started accidentally by illegal or unattended campfires, illegal fireworks, or carelessly tossed cigarette butts. What?!? Please don’t be the spark that starts a wildfire at Lake Tahoe!
This means no illegal campfires. Contain your flame in approved fire pits and properly extinguish campfires. And no illegal fireworks. You just look stupid with that bottle rocket in your hand.
Don’t let your party go up in flames. And for the love of everything that is sacred, please think of the dry, drought-striken forest and don’t flick your cigarette butts! Just don’t do it.
