Kid Playing With Matches Started California Wildfire

OK, so it wasn't global warming, wasn't Iraq, and it wasn't Blackwater.

Officials: Boy with matches started fire
SANTA CLARITA, Calif. - Officials blamed a wildfire that consumed more than 38,000 acres and destroyed 21 homes last week on a boy playing with matches, and said they would ask a prosecutor to consider the case.

The boy, whose name and age were not released, admitted to sparking the fire on Oct. 21, Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Diane Hecht said Tuesday. Ferocious winds helped it quickly spread.

"He admitted to playing with matches and accidentally starting the fire," Hecht said in a statement.
The unapologetic insane troika of Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer and Randi Rhodes were unavailable for comment.

By the way, isn't it curious how quickly the national drive-by media fled California?
