2. There was a small one in San Diego County that was started by an arsonist!

People are unbelievable. We have an "Extreme red flag warning" until 5 PM Tues and these psychos try to start fires! I hope Karma nails these asses if the police don't.

3. I don't think any of the past week's CA fires are due to lightning.

It's fouled up.

4. I think faulty electric power lines started the fire in Paradise.

That isn't that uncommon either. That is what started either the Cedar (2003) or the Witch (2007) fire, I forget which one. They WERE two of the top 5 worst fires until last year. Now they are #4 and #6. It is really scary to know that just about anything can cause so much harm and destruction under the right weather conditions.

6. Which ones, the two down near LA?

I am not sure how those two started. A car that was dragging a loose chain underneath started a tiny fire on Sat AM in San Diego but it was put out quickly. Just about anything can start one it seems.

7. Not sure. An ABC7 reporter said two of the fires started 30 mins apart with no lightning,

plainly suggesting she suspected arson. I think she probably meant the northern Camp and southern Woolsey fires.
(Don't know if it was the same anchor who described the Thousand Oaks suspect as mid-eastern minutes after her station interviewed a witness describing him as "white or hispanic".)

9. The Witch Fire was started by sparking electrical lines

The Cedar Fire was started by an injured hunter who set a signal fire at sundown on a windy Santa Ana day.

10. Thanks. My memory is getting fuzzy.

Did the hunter start it as a signal because he was lost and needed help and it got out of control?
