Lac le Jeune residents, did you realize that the area has had a small wildfire? It appears that it was extinguished by someone during the evening of Aug. 22.
What brought it to my attention was the fresh moist ground next to Lac le Jeune Road, just north of Rainbow Avenue.
Was it a lightning strike that has been smoldering for days? Was it caused by a wildlife photographer, who was standing on the bank within 30 feet of that wildfire site taking photos of the osprey?
The photographer was in that area some evening during last weekend or the early part of this week and may have been driving a small-size pickup with canopy. Please people; commit yourself from smoking in our tinder dry forests.
