Agriculture Commissioner Says Controlled Burn Not the Source of Pile Up

February 5th, 2008 by flanews

A report on the January wildfire that may have contributed to a 50 car pile
up on Interstate four, claims those in charge of a controlled burn did
everything required by law. The report said chance coincidences contributed
to a ten acre burn turning in a 500 acre wildfire. Contributing factors
include a sudden increase in wind and a drop in humidity. In releasing the
report, Agriculture Commissioner Charles Bronson said he was concerned with
knowing if his department had dotted all the Iís and crossed the Tís.

“I was more concerned about the legality of whether all those conditions
that were supposed to be met were met or whether there were mistakes made,Ē said Bronson.

Bronson added reports of victims smelling smoke may have been due to cars
burning, not the wildfire.
