Authorities are contending that a Sacramento area youth started a small wildfire, resulting in his arrest.
Authorities have not yet determined nor stated if the boy set the fire intentionally or, as most stoners can relate to, he set the fire by ashing his poorly rolled joint in dry brush.
The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said the fire, which burned almost 13-acres, had threatened homes and prompted temporary evacuations in the Auburn area. Despite the damage to area wildlife, residents were able to hack out a gurgle of relief knowing that their properties (and selves) were not harmed. But fuck squirrels. Just because.
Due to the individual being a minor, his name and age have not been released. Although severe and unrelenting trolling on social media will likely begin this week.
