Poop Break Starts Foothills Fire
BLM officials say a cyclist who stopped to take a poop is responsible for starting a fire that burned more than 73 acres in the Boise foothills.
According to BLM spokeswoman Carry Bilbao, a man was cycling in the foothills when he stopped to defecate. The rider tried to get rid of the waste by lighting the toilet paper on fire. He then tried to bury the burning waste to put it out, but an ember spread to nearby dry grass.
