ARSON!

 Via Drudge: CBS News is reporting that at least one of the horrific fires devastating Southern California was deliberately set.

In possibly related news an arrest has been made for a brush arson in San Bernadino.

4 dead

24 firefighters and 21 civilians wounded

640 square miles charred and a million people displaced.

Throw the book at them!

Here is what the fires look like from 708 km up....

UPDATE: Big roundup of links here (via Instapundit)

Ron Coleman recommends this site.

Update 2: Via Pete in the comments, it appears at this time that the fellow who was arrested was arrested for starting a fire unconnected  to the big ones..Stephen is right, several of these fires were natural or accidental, the area is a tinderbox eg. no thermite required.
