California wildfire said set by arsonist threatens communityA Southern California wildfire – which authorities say was set by an arsonist with a grudge against a neighbor – doubled in size overnight into Friday as crews built fire lines and fought to protect thousands of homes in a lakefront community. The Holy Fire, which broke out on Monday in Holy Jim Canyon in Orange County southeast of Los Angeles, has already destroyed 12 structures and was only 5 percent contained as of Friday. Forrest Gordon Clark, 51, who owns a cabin in Holy Jim Canyon, was arrested earlier this week after a standoff with police and charged with arson, making criminal threats and resisting arrest.
