Remember the 7.5-acre brushfire in the Northwest Open Space west of the I-5 last September? Fire investigators still don’t know who started it.

That same late September weekend, two smaller fires were started in nearby Laguna Niguel. Investigators said at the time it looked suspicious.

But since then, if you can excuse a pun, the trail has gone cold.

“They never really got any leads,” said Orange County Fire Authority spokesman Steve Concialdi. “We’re not sure what happened.”

Hi, Sam Avacado here. Lint, you found me out. I had to find a way for our city to use more water. Our water rates are not high enough yet. We need to use all the water we can here in Sam Juan so I can justify raising the rates to the highest in the nation ! I want to be number one in highest water rates. Lint, I am so glad that you enjoy the Avacado lifestyle. I am Sam Avacado, the mayor of Sam Juan.

OMG, Sam, I thought you were the crooked Mayor of San Juan, then I looked a little closer. Yes Sam is a greedy, rude, careless person who doesn't care about the People or Bears ha, of this town. If Sam did it, then it would make sense after our meeting because this is right behind my home. Recall Allevato, he is crooked as they come!!
