​​​​​​At this point, if you want to have a fire and not have Forrest go Chainsaw Willie on you, it needs to be on the beach below the high tide line.

Camp fires aren't inherently evil and people have been using them for a very long time. But we're in a bad context now. The people who will ignore a burn ban when it's been this dry for this long are mostly the ones who can't take care of it properly. Fall will come, right around when camp fires start getting more and more appropriate, they'll be safer to have too. Until then, it's been a lot of short sleeve nights.
