Arson suspect in Holy Fire appears in court
(CNN)The man accused of setting a Southern California fire that has burned more than 19,000 acres appeared in court Friday and said, "It's all a lie!" as a judge read the charges against him.
Forrest Gordon Clark, 51, did not enter a plea during the brief appearance in an Orange County courtroom. When the judge explained the process further to him, Clark said, "I comprehend. I do not understand though." He is due back in court August 17 for arraignment and bail review.
Clark was charged Thursday with aggravated arson and criminal threats, among other offenses, in starting the Holy Fire in Cleveland National Forest that has scorched 19,107 acres and was 10% contained as of Friday night, according to forest officials.
Clark was arrested this week on suspicion of setting off the blaze after he allegedly sent a text to a volunteer fire chief two weeks ago saying, "The place is going to burn."

Typical. Got his own religion, walks around with no clothes on. Starts forest fires.
Iwonder how many muzzies start all these Forrest fires?
Weren’t muslims in the U.S. instructed by ISIS to set forest fires? Is the west coast of Canada on fire also?
