CA-RFD- Squirrel – Vegetation fire
Redding, CA – A squirrel is blamed for unwittingly starting a recent fire in Redding according to Jim Schultz of redding.com.
The fire began when a squirrel shorted out a power line, caught fire, and dropped into dry vegetation below.
According to battalion Chief Gerry Grey, it took 18 firefighters and six fire engines to fight the fire that started behind a Redding restaurant. The fire threatened a home briefly before it was contained on Monday.
Pat Keener, spokesman for Redding Electric Utility, said about 200 customers might have noticed a brief flicker in their electricity when the short occurred, but the incident did not cause a power outage.
in order to assist the fire department in better understanding how skwirrels mite be starting fires i hav ritten a much ekspanded verzhun of this skolarly treetis on skwirrel asonists this treetis is the result of paynstaykng undercover reeserch by myself and uthers as wel as sum deduktiv reezoning baysd on intervyooz with varyus rodents wot ar familyar with skwirrels and how they like to set fires
heer we can see an eksampel of a skwirrel wot is yoozing a flaymthrower to protekt itself from a marawding hawk of sum sort wile it is commonly beleevd that skwirrels are meek viktims of aryal predayshun they do in fakt hav a numbr of defenses in addishun to flaymthrowers they ar nown to be ekwipped with surfas to ayr missils laser beems and a copy of that old missil command viddyo gaym
nekst up is a skwirrel hoodlum wot is smoking a sigaret now as long as the skwirrel hoodlum is kayrful to put his sigaret owt properly this will not be a problem howevr skwirrel hoodlums are notorius for just dropping there sigarets wen they are tired of them and thus fire ensoos
heer we see a skwirrel enjoying a nise toasted marshmello over a hibachi unforchoonatly skwirrels ar not verry gud abowt mayking shoor there hibachis ar owt befor wandring off in serch of nuts and thus hibachis ar a leeding kawse of skwirrel relayted fires note also that if the skwirrel permits its marshmello to katch fire this can then also kawse a wildfire wen the skwirrel drops it and runs away in feer
heer we hav a skwirrel wot has sold its sole to the devil in order to bekum the verry powerful and grately feerd skwirrel rider the skwirrel rider leevs a trayl of flayms warever it goze and has been responsibul for sum of the lardjest skwirrel relayted blazes evr rekorded note that the skwirrel rider shood not be confyoozd with runaway ralph the frendly motorcycle riding mowse altho hmmm come to think of it i hav nevr seen them together at the saym time!!!!
nekst we hav the skwirrel welder wich heer is repayring a cherry picker wot is yoozd by bunneez to eet froot trees now skwirrel welders are nown to be the lowest bidders on most projekts and that is becuz they notoryusly cut korners on safety and so there neglijense leeds to at leest three or fore fires evry yeer
and finaly heer we see a skwirrel wot is eeting a halapino peppr wot is kawsing it to hav firy discharjes frum its nether reedjuns this is a primary kawse of skwirrel relayted fires in the sowthwest ware halapino peppers ar verry common wareas in other reedjuns such as the northeast the skwirrel has to mayk do with the less volatil pepperoncheeni
wel their yoo hav it a skolarly treetis on varyus sorts of skwirrel arsonists as yoo can see in most kayses the arson is only insidental to the skwirrels other aktiviteez such as welding or barbekyooing howevr that duz not mayk them enny less of a thrett or enny less responsibul for the destrukshun kawsed by there kayrlessness so remember if yoo see a skwirrel eeting a halapino tayk it away as soon as yoo can the home yoo sayv may be yore own ok bye
