Vandalism Killed the Senator

Arrest made in “Senator” fire

Arrgh!  Last January 16, I wrote here about the largest tree in Florida, a cypress named The Senator, burning down.  At the time I hoped it was due to natural causes, like a lightning strike.  Now a drug addict has confessed to starting the fire.  Granted, the perpetrator looks too young to have even heard of Smokey the Bear, but now I’m wondering if all those public service messages about fire safety were in vain?  I’ll finish by posting my favorite PSA from those days, the one about the careless bears on a picnic.
