GUNTER: Time to talk about the real causes of all these fires


On Sept. 4, a small forest fire was spotted near the base of Alberta’s Blackrock Mountain, not far from Devil’s Head peak, just north of the resort town of Canmore. Initially, it burned only about 10 acres. Then the winds whipped up and by Sept. 7, the blaze had consumed about 1,600 acres. Flames were so intense the bottoms of clouds that hung just over the peak glowed red even in the middle of the afternoon.
