Wanted for questioning.

Other than a few trees that are scattered apart, what is there that can burn in a cemetery?

Crematoriums burn in a cemetery every single day, man.

Dead people sometimes spontaneously combust, usually from spinning too fast in their graves.

Depends, if it's an active cemetery we're talking about a lot of artificial plants planted in foam and plastic planters. I know if there was ever a fire in the neighborhood of my father's grave, if the winds were wrong it'd take out a bunch of houses across the street.

As for this one, given they pointedly said that it was across from a tavern, I'm guessing someone threw a cigarette on foliage like a dumbass.

On the question of whether it's OK to yell "Fire" in a crowded cemetery the jury is still out on that, or to be more accurate, it's "hung" and well, if you ask subby's mom.

When you want a viking funeral and there is no nearly lake.

I'd have gone with an undead reference.

I don't know, I'm just guessing at this point. I'm in the opposite corner of New England so it's not even like I've been up there in years.

Someone saved us from a zombie outbreak.  We should be thanking them.

There are often outbuildings for maintenance stuff - lawnmowers and that kinda stuff.  The cemetery where my parents are has a small office there for the administration stuff - signing up, orientation, etc

It's small, and I think inactive. I used to walk past it all the time (live on upper elmwood). The timing is unfortunate, we had massive rain last night so today on it would not haven even smoldered. I agree that probably some idiot pub goer tossed a cig, the brush was fairly dry due to a drought condition.
