Boy Scouts of America

Salt Lake City, UT: (Mar-07-07) The state of Utah filed a lawsuit against the local chapter of the Boy Scouts of America over a wildfire that burned 14,200 acres of land near a campsite. The state alleged in its lawsuit that the wildfire started at a campsite where 17 Scouts, ages 12 to 14, were working on a wilderness-survival badge in the Uinta Mountains in eastern Utah. There were two 15-year-old counselors but no adults present at the campsite. In a settlement reached, the Boy Scouts of America have agreed to pay $330,000 and plant 9,000 tree seedlings, ending the lawsuit. [FOX NEWS: SCOUTS WILDFIRE]
