On May 26, two juveniles used a fidget spinner and a match to accidentally start the  fire in Sierra Vista, police said.

The fire quickly grew to 30 acres. No buildings were damaged and nobody was injured, Sierra Vista police said.

"This fire demonstrates how a careless mistake can spark a fire that poses significant danger,” a police spokesman told KGUN. “Common causes of fires include target shooting, camp fires, barbecues, and cigarette butts."
