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 Sheriffs 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.

Illegal immigrant is arrested for 'starting dozens of wildfires in Colorado that forced hundreds to evacuate and destroyed 38,000 acres of land', as video shows blaze rapidly engulfing one of the many decimated homes...
Is his name Global Warming because that’s what the media told me caused it, not some virtuous dreamer
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.
ICE wont say where he’s from. I’ll bet its not mexico or some other $#it hole central american country.
Jesper Joergensen?.....He’s probably not from France..................
He’s Dutch, He’s Danish....................He’s nuts!..................
Johnny Fever’s brother.
Be sure to catch the outrage from See-BS Nightly “News” tonight...
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 same problem occurs in CA annually.
Fry his ass.
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. Its 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.
