Authorities suspect they’ve found the cause of a wildfire that burned nearly 150 buildings last summer in San Diego County.
U-T San Diego says a state Cal Fire report concludes that the Chariot fire most likely started when a federal Bureau of Land Management Jeep ignited brush.
The fire last July burned 7,000 acres of brush, destroying cabins and much of a Shriner’s camp in the Cleveland National Forest.
A BLM statement says the agency has been cooperating with Cal Fire’s investigation and is reviewing the report.
