Not to make light of the California Fires as two outstandin fire fighter lost their lives battling these blazes, but it appears that they were deliberatly set, which throws a HUGE wrench in Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) statement that Global Warming caused the fires! Come on California, can’t you guys grow a backbone and get these IDIOTS out of office?
There were more fires in 1960 than there are today-I suppose she does not know how to research facts before she opens her OBVIOUSLY ignorant mouth?
Officials said they determined that the Station fire, the largest brush fire in the history of Los Angeles County, was the result of arson after investigators examined forensic evidence from scorched landscape off Angeles Crest Highway, north of La Cañada Flintridge. The spot is believed to be the origin of the Station fire.
A person close to the investigation said incendiary material had been found near the site. The source, who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to discuss the matter, would not be more specific or identify the material.
Firefighters at the Station fire command center began their day today remembering Ted Hall and Arnie Quinones, Los Angeles County firefighters who died Aug. 30 trying to protect about 60 people as flames advanced near Mt. Gleason.
