    Fire in Middlesex Fells?

    I was riding today, and i was near the end and I noticed everything was burnt up. I rode further and I was stopped by firemen and told to turn around bc there was a fire.

    Unfortunately, this happened to a trail park near where I lived in New Hampshire, then a year later housing developer came in and built homes...

    Don't think that will be an issue. The FoF would have a collective aneurysm at the idea of development.

    We're actually in somewhat of a drought right now and with the amount of dead fall on the ground, drying up, the fire danger is probably elevated for this time of year. All it takes is one dumb move and I can see a fire starting. Hopefully it's not the same kind of crap that's happening at Nam.
