Hate to say this... The Fort Mac fire was human-started. Either a hot exhaust pipe from an ATV or some dumb idiot not putting a camp fire out or even worse, throwing a cigarette butt. There were no reports of lightning strikes in the area when the fire started.

FACT: The UK has more tornadoes per square mile than anywhere else in the world; they just happen to generally be very weak.
