It's bad enough that 90% of this park got burned recently. Today, somebody set a fire today at the Oaks right by the submerged dam. Me and my riding buddies saw the smoke just before starting the climb up the first b!tch. By then the smoke was about 20-30 ft in the air. When we got to the dam we found a hiker with a small dog trying to dose the fire with his water bottle. Luckily the ranger showed up with some buckets so we helped bail water from the dam to put the fire out while the ranger went to go meet the OC fire dept.
It was out pretty quick with no real damage done but jeez man, hasn't this park been
Feel bad though for my riding bud, who managed to lose his sunglasses down by the dam and then had an asthma attack on the 2nd B!tch from the breathing smoke from the fire.
