This week, May 1 – 7, is National Arson Awareness Week. This year’s theme is “Prevent Wildfire Arson — Spread the Facts Not the Fire.”
Wildfire's can take place on underdeveloped wildland or uncultivated land comprised of forest, brush or grassland.
Back in March, Montgomery County experienced several brush/wildfire type of fires. These fires were not classified as arson though. Of particular note were two days in which two large brush/wildfire type fires occurred. You can learn more about those fires below:
