NBC Bay Area – A 27-year-old man who was allegedly at an illegal marijuana plot is suspected of starting a wildfire that has burned about 6 square miles of forested land in northern California.

Freddie Alexander Smoke III was arrested Saturday and accused of recklessly causing a fire and with marijuana cultivation, both felonies, according to the California Department of Fire and Forestry Protection.

The agency said he was delivering material to the pot site in Shasta County when the exhaust from his truck ignited dry grass.

The so-called Bully fire has since grown to 3,700 acres and destroyed six structures, CalFire officials said. The blaze, which is burning in steep terrain, was just 10 percent contained Sunday morning.

Fredric Alexander Smoke the 3rd aka Freddie Smoke starting a forrest fire because his weed went up in flames is pretty much the least surprising news of the summer. I knew a kid who’s last name was Tobacco in middle school and I’ll be damned if he wasn’t ripping butts by the time he was in high school. If you’re surname has anything to do with drugs or alcohol, my guess is that you’re going to try it out at least a few times.

But when you’re name is Freddie Smoke, you kind of have to have a reputation to be a fire bug, right? Even this dude’s mugshot reeks of, “Are you guys really surprised about this?” Probably was just expecting for Smokey the Bear and the forest fire patrol to bring him any day just for being Freddie Smoke. Just ripping blunts two at a time, probably smoking in his sleep like the guy from XXX.
