If a fire breaks out and spreads into thorn bushes so that it burns shocks of grain or standing grain or the whole field, the one who started the fire must make restitution.
"Fire" is used hundreds of times in the Bible. It has many meanings and uses, some good, some bad. Today, I'm reminded of the fires that are destroying homes, land, animals, and even people in Texas. The fires that have been started by natural causes are one thing, but a fire caused by a dropped cigarette or misuse of fire is inexcusable. Please use the common sense that God gave you!
