The smoking hillside next to the Lake Christine shooting range at about 6 p.m. on July 3, just minutes after the fire was sparked by two area residents who were allegedly shooting illegal tracer rounds and before firefighters arrived. The fire has since grown to nearly 6,000 acres, consumed three homes, and displaced more than 2,000 people who had to be evacuated.
