Investigators are now having a chance to comb over areas ravaged by fire in California:
"One of the larger fires in Southern California was deliberately started by someone with apparent knowledge of arson, a fire official said Thursday.
The Santiago Fire in Orange County was started in two places along a little-traveled road, according to Chief Chip Prather of the county's fire authority.
The fire, which has burned more than 25,000 acres, was started in brush just off Santiago Canyon Road, not close to homes. It spread rapidly, indicating the arsonist had some knowledge of winds and other factors.
"It is a confirmed arson. There was evidence found at the scene. That is the purpose of our early declaration of it being an arson-caused fire," Prather said. He would not describe the evidence."
That makes one arsonist shot, 5 others arrested and police pleading for public help to find arsonists. And just because one or two may have hispanic names, that doesn't necessarily mean that they are hispanic. In the world of fake ID, Islamists have no problem impersonating Mexicans or South Americans.
Unfortunately, arson is a rather "icognito" war tactic used by terrorists who probably love it because they can start fires under the cover of darkness and they aren't required to blow themselves up!
