When authorities determined that a 9-year-old boy playing with matches had inadvertently started the Buckweed Fire, they declined to press charges. And now they have concluded that five partying young men inadvertently started the Malibu fire over Thanksgiving. As a result, prosecutors have charged the men with felonies. In both cases, authorities made the right decision. Unlike the boy who caused the Buckweed blaze, the men in Malibu were all adults. Moreover, they all knew, or should have known, that starting fires in the cave above Corral Canyon is illegal. Doing so during a dry season of hot Santa Ana winds only compounded the infraction. So did failing to report the fire to authorities. That recklessness caused $100million in damages. Those responsible should be held accountable, if for no other reason than as a warning to others who could make the same horrible errors in judgment.
