Great story and good job! Sounds like you have a future in Wildfire fighting.

I wonder if NYS has the Professional Wilderness Fire Fighting units that the West does. Since we don't get them very often I think not.

To further prove my case that the Ignitors are not a problem here is a quote from a DEC press release in July 2012.

"The vast majority of blazes this summer have been triggered by recreational campfires, but the DEC says two of the biggest fires were sparked by a lightning strike and by operations of the scenic railroad between Saranac Lake and Lake Placid."
