Would that be a salt marsh?

A marsh fire swept through Mentor, Ohio. I didn't know that such a thing as a marsh fire even existed. Brush fire, sure -- it's dry, fire, no problem. Marshes seem kind of ... wet for fires, don't they?

I think the fire chief explained it best when he said of Mentor, "It's a beautiful place to live until it's on fire."

Which is why I no longer live in Ohio. If it's not beautiful when it's on fire, what's the point?
