Did a reckless smoker throw a lit cigarette out of his or her car window? People should call 911 if they see someone do that near a dry grass field.

I saw some jerk on the Dish trail smoking a cigar right after the fire there a few years ago, couldn't believe it, reported him to the guard. Second time I saw someone smoking there.
