2018 - Fires Around The World

"There were 8,650 arson incidents in California in 2017, up from a state historic low of 7,164 in 2011, according to the California Department of Justice. While arson rates have been plummeting in the state since the department started reporting them in 1985, last year’s increase was the largest increase in arson incidents in decades."

Mendocino County Fires

NORTH COAST, Calif. – On Wednesday, Cal Fire law enforcement officers arrested a Piercy man for setting fires in Mendocino County.

Charles Levi Kirk, 18, was arrested for arson, Cal Fire said.

Cal Fire alleges that Kirk started several fires in the Willits, Laytonville, Leggett, and Piercy areas.

The fires in the Leggett and Piercy areas began a month-long cooperative investigation led by Cal Fire officers with the assistance of the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office and the Mendocino County District Attorney’s Office, Cal Fire said.

On Sept. 26, a search warrant was served at Kirk’s property, resulting in the seizure of evidence, officials reported.

Cal Fire said Kirk was taken into custody and transported to the Mendocino County Jail where he will await trial. Bail is set at $150,000.
