VIDEO: Wildfire season has become year-round in Arizona. It has proven to be dangerous and sometimes deadly.
Firefighters at the Golder Ranch Fire District say a fire can start and spread within seconds in the right conditions.
“All it takes is one spark,” Adam Jarrold told KGUN 9.
Jarrold, with the Golder Ranch Fire District, reminds folks to be extra alert during this time of year.
“70% of wildland fires are human-caused. We’ve had fires start simply by people throwing their cigarettes out the window,” he added.
While humans are a cause of most wildland fires, Jarrold says nature is the driving factor for the others.
