Over the past few months, there have been a lot of fires in and around Old Fort - multiple houses and properties have been torched, and it doesn't seem like a month, sometimes a week goes by without something being on fire. Noone's died yet, I don't think, but I don't want my family or friends being the first ones. I'm worried that there's someone or someones out there setting these fires, and it's disturbing. I remember the fire we had when Chimney Rock caught on fire - it almost burnt up my grandparents' house, and did burn down my great-great-grandmother's house, and ruined thousands of acres of land..

All we can do now is just keep a close eye out and do everything we can to make sure no more fires start, and call it in if we suspect a fire of some sort. Noone can avoid everything, but if there is someone out there starting these fires, hopefully they'll be caught soon. If not, well, hopefully the recent spate of fires will (pardon the pun) sputter out.
