A man was arrested on Saturday on charges of starting a forest fire in Colorado that has destroyed structures and forced hundreds to evacuate their homes in one of dozens of wildfires raging across the drought-hit U.S. southwest.

Jesper Joergensen, 52, was taken into custody last Saturday for the suspected arson that started the Springs Fire, according to Costilla County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.

Joergensen is not a U.S. citizen and will be handed over to ICE once he has faced arson charges, said a Costilla County detention officer.

The officer could not immediately say what nationality Joergensen held.

The fire has scorched over 38,000 acres (15,378 hectares) between the towns of Fort Garland and La Veta in southern Colorado, forcing more mandatory evacuations of homes and ranches on Saturday in a mountainous area of public and private land.

Dylan R Brown Agency - Farmers Insurance captured video of the wildfire as it devoured a home on Forbes Park in Fort Garland.

The brief clip shows the driveway of the home as fire blazes its way toward the house.

Soon, a bright red light comes into view as the flames engulf the building.

Heard on a news report this morning he was from Denmark.

We had a bunch of big fires here a few years ago.

We know, but can’t prove, that those were set by the illegals too.

Unusual name. Here's a Facebook profile of a Jesper Jorgenson who lives in Colorado and is from Holbaek Denmark. The profile picture looks like the man in the DM article. Seems like quite an odd duck too based on his postings.

the headline is a fake ... this guy DID start the Costilla County fire, but nowhere that I’ve seen, including this story, did anyone accuse this illegal alien arsonist of starting “dozens” of fires ...

The Breitbart story is similar.
"Authorities in Colorado arrested an illegal alien Saturday who they accuse of starting a series of wildfires that destroyed over 38,000 acres of land."

These are the types that started showing up in this area. This is why we sold our beautiful cedar home and 10 acres last year. It became infested with this type. These people felt like they could go anywhere and do anything. They were using 5 gallon buckets to crap in and using water out of the reservoir where I fished to live on. We were told he started the fire by burning trash after he was already fined doing it before. It’s heartbreaking to read the people out there trying to find places for their horses and livestock.

Very surprising to see this front-page headline at NYT.

Doesn’t seem to be the kind of news they like to report.

Wait... foreign news source. Never mind.
