West Side Fire District

Quick – name six ways a vehicle can start a wildfire! 🚙💥🚫
First of all, almost any car or truck with a catalytic converter, or exhaust system, underneath the body of the vehicle is a threat to start a fire when in contact with tall grasses or other dry plants. It happens every summer, every year.
Other threats:
- severely worn brake pads can cause metal on metal sparks;
- a hot engine, similar to a catalytic converter, is dangerous next to vegetation;
- exhaust sparks from recreation vehicles;
- dragging metal can cause sparks;
- and even low tire pressure can cause wheel-to-road sparks.
Be safe this spring and summer when driving on public lands! #OneLessSpark
