From what I heard yesterday, all of the fires started pretty much at the same time, which raises suspicion right there..whenever it gets very hot here, the crazies come out to start fires and watch it burn..it gets them off
The arson strategy is recommended in al qaeda handbooks, so this is not surprising ... the arsonists and/or their motives in the recent spate of forest fires in America
Yup. They also wait for strong Santa Ana winds to spread the flames quickly. These fires look very suspicious.
Jihadists, I’ll bet.
i posted this list pretty late last nite on another thread but seems appropriate to this conversation, too. Only the Anaheim and Tomahawk fires were isolated to vehicle fire origins. My guess is the perp lives somewhere in the area south of the last fire. There was no way to get north on I5 or I15 because of extended closures of each from early afternoon on. Don’t know what it means for a high school and a college to be on the list but it might be a hint somehow.
From my location I can see new smoke over the hill to the southwest, looks pretty black - seems to around Oceanside/San Clemente area?

I live in North County San Diego, and all of those fires began within 25 miles of our town. They did not start at the same time but started in about a one hour sequence. Some mentally deficient and aggrieved dude in an old pickup will no doubt be collared for the crime within the next week.
I’ve been in this area for over 20 years, and I’ve never seen first taking off like this. Very scary. I sure hope they catch these people.
I don’t bet, but I’d guess it could very well be members of the ELF environmental group. They have set fires here before.
BUT... are they American crazies or Islamic crazies ?
