What Type Of Sick Person . . .



. . . would burn a 3500 year-old tree for no good reason?

Investigators said there was no lightning in the area Monday morning, so they believe it was arson. Most likely, they said, someone broke into the park overnight and intentionally set the fire.

This kind of senseless destruction actually makes me physically sick. Story here.

Officials with Seminole Fire Rescue said they do not believe the fire is the result of arson.

Have they changed their tune?

I missed that Brock. I read there was no lightning in the area, so the assumption was arson. Either way, it's quite sad.

“If somebody did this, they're going to get it from God, that's for sure,” Winfree said.

If someone did in fact do this, that is all of the justice they will need. This is indeed very sad, but I wonder what would make them think it wasn't arson - if there was no lightning then what else might it be?

I don't know what it could be if not lightning nor arson. Trees don't just burst into flames.
