Yesterday we had 11 + fires – that quickly got out of control due to the wind. It was so scary as reports of several arsonists were being reported.
Arrested: Daniel Timothy Sims who is a Registered Arsonist with connections in Florida and Wyoming. He is originally from Florida.
1. #Point Fire in Cottonwood. The vehicle associated with a registered arsonist seen leaving the area.
Point Fire is at 90% contained.
2. #Olinda Fire near the Landfill. 100% contained at 20 acres
3.#Alexander Fire off 273 in Anderson. 50 acres
4. #Bailey Fire in Shingletown. The cluster of five fires burned a total of 10 acres near Shingletown, where he was arrested.
5 #The Dersch Fire reached 133 acres as of 7 a.m. Monday and is 90% contained
The other fire was the result of a domestic disturbance. A man set his girlfriend\’s car on fire. He has been caught and arrested.
You have to have a scanner living around here – I honestly believe California should look into these arsonists that do start these forest fires and give them a maximum sentence for destroying our forest lands and killing people. HOWEVER, looking at his low bail, he will be out in no time. I was listening to the scanner and people all around were reporting the same vehicle leaving the scene – a red Land Rover. People were out actively looking for him.
Never a dull moment around here. I am surrounded by 3 major forests and National Parks. So yeah, we\’re going to attract some pyromaniacs. This is their paradise.
