Judge Tena Campbell – How not to put out a fire

The U.S. government is asking Judge Tena Campbell to hold the Boy Scouts of America responsible for over $12 million in damages for lighting a fire that eventually consumed more than 14,000 acres in 2002.

Amusingly, the Deseret News article states: “The Scouts also testified that they thought they had put the fire out by dumping a cup of water on it, throwing dirt on it and urinating on it. Overby pointed out that the Scout’s own manual says fires must be put out by dousing it with water and dirt and mixing the ashes. A Scout testified he didn’t want to mix the fire because others had urinated on it.”
