Local fire officials may tighten rules on outdoor shooting ranges after stray bullets set off two major fires that cost taxpayers more than $1 million. A brush fire last week near Lake Piru and a forest fire in late June at Kings Campground in Los Padres National Forest together scorched more than 3,000 acres. The Piru fire started at a public shooting range, and the Kings fire was sparked by a target-shooter in a legal shooting area.
