Is It Really Arson? California Burns Because of Jerks
ORANGE COUNTY, California (CNN) -- One of the larger fires in Southern California is a suspected arson, a fire official confirmed Thursday.
The FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Orange County Fire Authority are investigating the Santiago Fire, which has burned more than 22,000 acres, Orange County Fire Battalion Chief Kris Concepcion told CNN.
"The reason we think it is [arson] is because we found multiple points of origin," Concepcion said. "... Our investigators have confirmed that this is, in fact, arson."Concepcion would not say how the fire was started, but said evidence indicated the arsonist wanted the fire to grow rapidly.
