Anyone who states differently is just one of those Nazi nannies who love to tell everyone what to do.


A few years ago, at a big launch in Arizona, there were a couple of guys in lounge chairs, just smoking away, butts all around. Well, occasionally a bad rocket flight would crash and people would check for fires.

There was a crash in their direction but no problem till la few minutes later FIRE!!! A fire really got going. Wow, how did that crashed rocket start a fire that went os long undetected? Those two (can't call them here the names they deserve) scrambled, one got into his car and drove it out of the way of the fire so it did not get burned up, a KID was nearby and ALMOST HIT by his car since he was only concerned about his car and nothing or nobody else. Fortunately the fire got put out without having to call in the fire department

But the fire was NOT due to a rocket. After the excitement settled down, it turned out it was those two (Words I want to say but can't), one of their tossed cigarettes started the fire. So Karma tried to burn their car up!

If I was in charge, they'd have been banned from launches for a year, if not banned forever, for that reckless and irresponsible behavior.

Actually, it was federal land, they could have potentially been charged with negligent arson or reckless burning. But then if they'd been reported the club might have lost access to the field (which eventually they did anyway for totally different reasons).

With regard to the fire hazard, it does seem like smoking -on- the range would be the safest. Monitored and handy fire extinguishers.

If someone wants to smoke back at their car while prepping deployment charges, I mostly ask for a heads up so I can get my camera.
