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

Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency for Orange and Riverside counties Thursday night. The proclamation directs state agencies to provide help to local governments.

Schools have been closed in Menifee, Perris and Lake Elsinore.

Joe Rodriguez was using a power washer to wet down his patio in the McVicker Canyon Park neighborhood Thursday morning.

According to government incident website InciWeb: "The evacuation area covers 7,449 single family homes and numerous commercial structures with estimated evacuees totalling 21,484 people".

Fire chiefs say they expect it to burn for the rest of the month.

One then swoops in low behind a row of houses before opening its bay doors and dumping its load of flame retardant liquid over the ground.

Rodriguez's wife and two daughters evacuated.

"I'm pissed, I'm outraged, I'm disgusted", Lake Elsinore Mayor Natasha Johnson told CBS News.

After nearly a month of wildfires, the National Weather Service warned that satellite images showed "widespread smoke" drifting from the fires into western and central Canada before heading back south in the US Northern Plains.

Magee told residents at the community meeting to follow the mayor's example and listen to evacuation warnings and orders.

"I said 'I want nothing to do with you, Forrest".

"Pray for our town".

Rand Paul says he delivered Trump letter to Putin
He says the letter emphasized the importance of working together on counter-terrorism, legislative talks and cultural exchanges. In addition to tensions over election meddling, the two countries are also at odds over Syria and Ukraine.

Fire crews worked in 100-plus-degree (38 Celsius) heat.

According to a criminal complaint filed Thursday, he is charged with aggravated arson, arson of inhabited property, arson of forest, criminal threats, two counts of resisting and deterring an executive officer and arson burning multiple structures.

The 51-year-old Clark could face 10 years to life in prison.

The arraignment for Forrest Clark was supposed to be today, but the judge in the case said the suspect refused to go to court. It's unclear whether he has an attorney.

Smoke reaching 3,000 miles to the other side of the country may sound insane, but it's not unheard of in recent times.

On Thursday afternoon, the flames raced downhill toward Lake Elsinore, threatening homes and prompting mandatory evacuation orders for homes fronting the mountains.

High temperatures, strong winds and tinder-dry vegetation have accelerated the spread of the fire and officials admit it is only around ten percent contained.

About 100 miles (160 km) southwest of the Carr Fire, almost 4,000 firefighters are battling the Mendocino Complex Fire, which has burned 307,000 acres (124,240 hectares) to become the largest fire on record in California.

This comes after he allegedly sent a text to a firefighter two weeks ago saying it was all going to burn. It was 51 percent contained on Friday.

Environmentalists "make outdated and unscientific arguments, void of facts", Zinke wrote, "because they can not defend the merits of their policy preferences year after year as our forests and homes burn to the ground". "The flames were just twirling and twirling", she said.

There are several forces at work in attempting to control the blaze: The US Forest Service, CAL Fire, Riverside County Fire, Orange County Fire Authority, and the California Highway patrol. "I got burned. I woke up and my stuff was all on fire".
