I hate picking up news like this, where a group of ATV enthusiasts get blamed for a devastating fire. From what I can tell no one was hurt, but news like this lands a blow to ATV riders out looking for a safe fun place to ride. Talks are already happening that are planning to review current ATV laws and regulations in the Manitoba area.
The fire was started from dry grass or debris getting caught in a muffler and then falling to the ground. How they can tell this for certain I’ll never know, since a cigarette would leave a similar small fire and/or spark. No doubt there is a lobbyist in the midst somewhere down the line. Hopefully it won’t impact the ATV crowd too much, especially being this time of year when you need to get out and ride!
