Quote of the Day - It's arson. There's no lights, no electricity and no gas. What else is going to start it?
Regular readers know the recent California wildfires came within a block or so of my house, just across the street from the Santiago Fire, which burned nearly 30,000 acres. Arson caused the fire, according to fire investigators. No one died in the fire, but 15 homes were burned.
Our firefighters did a great job.
So when the Los Angeles County Sheriff obtained warrants for the arrest of five men who allegedly started the Malibu fire, it was good news. Fourteen people died in that fire. The men, who had a campfire, will be charged with felonies.
Let's just hope they catch the arsonists in Orange County, too.
