I used to enjoy grass fires when I was a kid,useing our jacket coats to control them, then smelling of smoke for weeks.

Too many grass fires already this year and the grass has been wet.the kids are going to have a field day when the grass is dry.

These type of fire waste so much time, resorces and money while putting members of the public at more risk due to the engine not being available for what could be considered more serious incidents.
