Bird on fire blamed for 2 acre wildfire

AP - Tue Jul 10, 4:46 PM ET

ASPEN, Colo. - A bird that caught fire after being electrocuted at a substation is suspected of igniting a 2 acre wildfire Monday, officials said. Fire personnel weren't able to identify whether the bird was raven or a crow that flew into exposed elements hanging from a high crossbeam on poles.
Oh, the visualizations...

An old acquaintance of mine once told me a story of how when he was younger, they would catch pigeons and tie a gas soaked rag around their feet and light it on fire. The birds, of course, would be scared shitless and would take off flying with the fire "chasing" them, only to keep trying to outfly it, which of course would fan the flames.

Amazing how no buildings were ever harmed during this experiment.
