Smokey Bear would take a narrow view of the likely cause of a fire that toppled a massive oak tree Monday afternoon behind the Briar Creek subdivision in Lawrenceburg.
City Fire Chief Robert Hume said it appeared the fire was set, likely by kids hanging out next to it and tossing cigarette butts in the tree's hollow trunk.
"You can see a couple of wooden blocks at the base ... kind of like someone was sitting there," Hume said. "There certainly weren't any lightning strikes today."
