Stupid stupid stupid!!! At about 11:00 today someone just south east of Austin started a 'controlled fire'. The problem with this concept is we are in a drought. To make matters worse, a cold front was moving in which kicked the winds up around 50, yup, 50 mph. The winds were at that point at 7:30 this morning so they were at their peak at 11:00. Last I heard 150 people have been evacuated in Hays County and they suspect, if they are lucky, they will have this fire under control in 24 hours. How could the authorities know it was origionally a controlled fire without knowing how, and more importantly, who started it? What idiot thought he could control a fire in 50 mph winds?
