The fire began on a grouse moor, and spread across a grouse moor. Unsurprisingly, grouse shooters and their supporters are desperately trying to shift the blame.

Large on again. This time in February...(!) Severe negative anomaly in precip for January across UK likely means dry ground conditions compared with usual. N England region also saw dry anomaly for 2018 average precipitation overall.

There seems to be a strong correlation with where the fire has been raging, and the tell-tale signs of intensively-managed grouse moor. Dry, burned heather is surely ideal tinder. Is this just coincidence?

Satellite image of the fire confirms location as being a large grouse moor. As uncovered, this land (outlined) is owned by the Enville & Stalybridge Estates, who've been "undertaking a very exciting restoration of a 3,000 acre grouse moor" there.

My quick note for the Guardian asking whether trashing the uplands for driven grouse shooting was the underlying cause of the fire:
