BEIJING, June 13 (Xinhua) -- According to Taiwans Joint News Network, on July 13, 2018, the largest mountain fire in California broke out in the history of the state, Mendocino Complex Fire. According to the latest investigation report, one of the pasture fire was caused by an unexpected fire ignited by a rancher when he extinguished wasps.

Glenn Kile, who lives in the suburbs of San Francisco, found a wasp hive in his backyard. Because Kyle was allergic to wasps, he knocked a nail into the ground, hoping to seal the hive. Unexpectedly, when he knocked on the nail, a fire broke out and landed on the hay. The fire was out of control.
I smelled the smoke, turned around and saw that it was on fire, and I was totally helpless, Kyle said. California Fire Information Service officials said that hammering nails with hammers, like matches at certain angles, could easily cause Mars.
Ranch Fire burns 1660 square kilometers, the largest single fire in Californias history, burning 150 buildings, thousands of firefighters took more than a month to put out, and one firefighter was killed by collapsed trees.
The report said that although Kyle was responsible for the outbreak of the Ranch Fire, he had no intention of doing so and was not sure whether Kyle would face punishment.
According to other reports, Californias worst-hit wildfire in history was the Camp Fire in the fall of 2018, which killed more than 80 people. In May, it was reported that the Pacific Watt Power Company (PG&E), which filed for bankruptcy in January due to a mountain fire, was responsible for the incident.
