$100,000 reward offered for information about Waldo Canyon Fire

An anonymous donor has offered a $100,000 reward to anyone who can provide information leading to an arrest of the person who started the Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The fire started June 23, killed two people and destroyed about 346 homes.

Investigators have not released information about how the fire started, except to say it was not ignited by lightning, which means it was human-caused.

In a presentation about economic warfare within the United States, William Scott introduced the hypothesis that the Waldo Canyon Fire may have been started by al Qaeda terrorists. You can see his talk HERE; he begins speaking about this fire at about 3:30.

  1. Hello Bill,
    I have seen the YouTube clip by William Scott. We lost our home to the Waldo Canyon fire.

    What is also important to know, is that Mr. Scott is correct. The forest service is fighting these fires on the cheap. It is my opinion that this fire should have been extinguished on June 23rd the day it started. But because of half-ass forest service protocol, the Waldo Canyon fire burned for several days and totally destroyed 346 homes.

    If we can place a 2000 lb bomb in the upper right and window pane of a six window pan window, we can put these fires out the same day that they start. How can I get in touch with Mr. Scott?

    We need to scrap these fire fighting aircraft that were built in WW-II and develop a modern from the ground up national forest fighting fleet based in Wyoming. It is time to get rigd of these procedures that were developed in the 50s on how to fight forest fires. Stop sending billions of dollars overseas to people who would kill you for spit and spend those funds on a modern forest fighting aircraft fleet.

    The time is now,
