Woman started 51,000 acre wildfire as firefighter friends 'were bored'



QUOTE
An American woman who caused a wildfire that burned across more than 51,000 acres has admitted starting the blaze because her firefighter friends were bored at work.

Investigators said 23-year-old Sadie Renee Johnson tossed a lit firework from a car into brush by the roadside in Oregon in July last year.

Two days later, with the wind-carried blaze on its way to spreading to 80 square miles, she added a Facebook post which read: "like my fire?"

Authorities spent nearly $8 million (£4.75 million) fighting the fire on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation with more than 800 firefighters sent to tackle the blaze.

Johnson pleaded guilty in May to starting the fire before the Justice Department finally revealed details of the case on Friday.

She told investigators she started the fire because her friends in the fire service were bored and needed work but never thought it could spread so far so quickly.

Johnson faces a maximum five-year jail sentence and a $250,000 fine and will be sentenced on September 3.

I should be mad but that's pretty badass even if it is an absolutely terrible crime.
