Can't see that happening. A quick search through BBC's site has these fires going on for a long time.

I can't see Northern Ireland Water Service, the National Trust and the hundreds of land owners getting organised enough to start 'patrolling' the Mournes looking for campers. Farmer Brown is more likely just to start kicking people off their land which is fair enough IMHO.

Maybe it would be an idea to have people like ourselves report these fires or suspicious activity on some sort of voluntary ranger basis?  :-\

Yup, that's what we're being told to do:

He advised people not to try and tackle any fire that could not be put out with a bucket of water, but instead call emergency services.

Mr McComb also urged people to report anything suspicious.
