There have been various news reports about a fire at Paul Moller’s ranch, with a lot of inaccurate information being reported.
There was a grass fire that managed to ignite one of the outbuildings on Dr. Moller’s ranch. The building that burned was a barn that was used for storage. Most of the losses are agricultural equipment and tools, but a few historical models of Dr. Moller’s vehicles were lost as well. However no injuries occurred in the fire, and Dr. Moller’s house is fine as well.
The cause of the grass fire is still under investigation. These fires are very common in California in the summer, as the dry air and heat make the native grasses extremely combustible.
