Rancho Cordova Arsonist Alert

File:Firetora.jpg

The Butte and Valley Wildfires have been catastrophic.  The images we have seen playing out on television recently are overwhelmingly heart-wrenching.  The destruction the fire has left in its path is of epic proportion.

According to a Sacramento Bee newspaper report, the Valley Fire that has scorched Sonoma, Napa and Lake counties, ranks about the third-worst in California history.

Although Cal Fire says they have managed to get a better handle on the two fires, officials report as many as 1,400 houses have been wiped out by the two huge wildfires in Northern California.

With the California Wildfires still weighing heavy on our minds, the thought of an arsonist on the loose, is most troubling.   Especially, when it happens close to home.
