What can you do?Edit

On campouts, be very careful. Do not leave open fires unattended, and when moving to a new spot, make sure the fire is completely out.  Be extremely careful with fires and matches.  Always have water in handy. Campers who leave open fires not completely out often are the causes of wildfires.
