Union Bay Natural Area brush fire

A group of us went to the Union Bay Natural Area (the Montlake Fill) on a regular outing and were surprised to come across a burnt out field. We thought it must have been a controlled burn but found out later on the internet it wasn't planned. According to the UW Daily, Campus Crime Blotter post the fire occurred July 29th- only 8 days previous from our visit. The brush fire burned roughly 2 acres and the charred remains is a stark contrast amongst the golden fields thriving with wildflowers.
