Man suspected of sparking huge California forest fire facing life in jail

Cal Fire Heavy Equipment Operator Andrew Brake was killed on Thursday while driving to respond to the Carr Fire

The so-called "Holy Fire" started on Monday in the Holy Jim Canyon area, has already burned 12 structures and is only five per cent contained, authorities say. "Everything else is replaceable but your life is not", Johnson said.

The Carr Fire has burned 177,450 acres as of Thursday morning.

So far California wineries have emerged unscathed from the fires with no reports of vineyards lost, though a number are testing their vines for smoke taint. He believed Pizzagate is real (it's not, but it did lead to a seriously unsafe situation) and more recently that someone deep within the US intelligence community is posting clues to troll boards, including 4chan and 8chan, about a coming political reckoning.

Currently, there are 404 fire engines, 93 water tenders, 19 helicopters, 84 bulldozers, and 4,019 personnel tasked with containing it.

Firefighters have achieved only 5 percent containment, Cleveland National Forest officials said on Twitter, though fire crews are hoping favorable weather conditions over the weekend will help them stem the fire's advance.

"It looked like a tornado".

"It's all tinder and as soon as the flames hit it, it's gone", he said. "Hopefully I have a house in the morning". "But somehow they did".

Hundreds more firefighters joined the effort, bringing the total to 1,200.

Visitors should expect limited hours and visitor services next week as the park returns to normal, he said.

For two weeks a tiresome haze and the faint smell of smoke from more than a dozen distant blazes have blanketed many California cities, forcing summer campers to stay inside, obscuring normally bright skylines and leaving cars covered with ash. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency for the two counties. "I got burned. I woke up and my stuff was all on fire".

"Stay safe", she said as smoke billowed behind her. "God bless". "We were on pins and needles for a little while there because it got real close".

The fire was deliberately set.

The Holy Fire - named for Holy Jim Canyon where it began is one of almost 20 blazes across California. He also claimed he had been threatened by the MS-13 gang.

He is being held on $1 million bail and expected in court Thursday.

If Clark is convicted he will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Mike Milligan, the local volunteer fire chief who owns a cabin near Clark's, told The Orange County Register that Clark had long-running feuds with neighbors in the area. Firefighters were trying to keep flames away from Santiago Peak, where critical communication infrastructure is located.

This makes it the third largest fire in modern California history on its own.

The Holy Fire is only one of 15 large fires burning in California in August. "Steep terrain, dry fuels, and inaccessible areas continue to be a factor in fire spread", the U.S. Forest Service said on the Inciweb fire tracking website. But if it's pulled down by the jet stream, it can cause unhealthy air quality.

The sheer size of the fires is numbing in a state that is still reeling from enormous blazes a year ago and has yet to hit its historically most risky months.
