    Massive grass fire blamed on gopher hunt

    A man accused of causing an enormous grass fire in Springbank while trying to kill gophers may be facing charges and fines worth thousands of dollars.

    Firefighters believe a large fire that burned Saturday in the Springbank Heights area for hours was started by a man shoving a propane torch down a gopher hole.

    The fire destroyed vehicles and outbuildings in the quarter section it burned.

    A fire ban is on in the area. The man faces a large fine for having an open flame, said Rocky View assistant deputy fire Chief Jim Pendergast.

    The man could also face a bill for the cost of firefighter upwards of $40,000.

    He had a license to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations.

    I looked into this a little bit more because I have in-laws who live in the area. The "Rodenator" was the weapon system of choice.
