Hundreds of fires are started each year by power tools. If you live in a wildland area, use extreme caution during fire season. Lawn mowers, string trimmers, chain saws, grinders, welders, and tractors can all start fires if not used properly.
Mowing: Striking rocks can create sparks and start fireas in dry grass. Use caution, mow only early in the day (before 10AM, when the weather is calm, cool, and moist).
