There’s a word for when the Denver district attorney’s husband is cited for violating open burn laws and is suspected of setting another burn that accidentally caused a wildfire.


The husband would be Christopher Linsmayer, who is married to Beth McCann, and the forest fire police suspect was sparked by open fires on their property in Kremmling occurred in September.
Just recently, Linsmayer was issued a summons for burning without a permit, a petty offense.

Linsmayer was burning without an adequate water source and did not have a permit, according to Grand County Sheriff’s Lt. Dan Mayer. He was issued a summons for a petty offense.

He also is suspected of igniting a September wildfire that prompted evacuations near Kremmling.

That wildfire forced the evacuation of a dozen homes and burned about 10 acres. While police say they are pretty sure the forest fire started as a result of open fires created by Linsmayer, he has not been charged.

McCann says her husband is fully cooperating with police in the matter. If so, we are certain he would own up to the September fire if he were at fault. Right?
