When Nico is first talking one can see the fire damage. Did it only get to that section? Further down it is still very green.

glad to see that the area was saved, could have been a lot worse by the looks of it. Great ripping too,

Cool fire breaks! The firefighters were probably stoked to see those trails.

Glad to see the trails weren't harmed in the fire! It does look dry though. Stay safe.

Why did it burn?

Suspect it was man made. 3 fires started that day.

So, like, 100m were burned and the whole title is about it. Meh
