Plaskett Fire

Does anyone know what started the Plaskett fire, I saw this exchange on the Big Sur Kate website which implies it was started by campers, is that true?

Having Plaskett Ridge Rd open to the public during the dry/fire season is like
leaving a loaded gun on the table when you go out, leaving your children alone at home.
It could be creating paying employment for the coroner & undertaker
– just like jobs for the firefighters-
or, it could be ruining a lot of lives & homes for a lot of people & animals.
