A Shasta County woman was arrested this week and accused of setting the 2018 Delta Fire, which destroyed about 20 homes and burned more than 63,000 acres.
Cynthia Ann LeRoux, 57, of Mountain Gate, has been charged with 20 felony arson counts connected to the Delta Fire and two smaller fires, Shasta County District Attorney Stephanie Bridgett said.
“After speaking with the other two people, investigators said LeRoux was the only one who claimed to have been at the scene of the fire around the time it started. That, combined with her history with fires, made her a primary suspect, according to reports.
The reports stated she had been charged with seven counts of arson in Butte County in 1993 but was found “not guilty by reason of insanity,” Local California news reported, on reading. com.
Bridgett said the case includes two charges for arson causing great bodily injury to two truck drivers who had been passing through the Delta Fire area. She said the fire forced the closure of Interstate 5 for several days.
If convicted, Bridgett said the charges against LeRoux have a maximum penalty of “well over 50 years.” Bridgett said she was not able to discuss a potential motive for the fires at this time.
Consider this nuttery from CA Forward, describing the very same fires, and placing the blame for them on “Climate Change”:
“As Fires Burn: It’s Time To Take Climate Change Seriously In Rural California,” RV Schnide wrote in 2018.
WATCH THE HUMAN SUFFERING FROM THE 2018 FIRES:
THE LEFT INSISTS THE FIRES ARE DUE TO THEIR WEALTH BUILDING ‘CLIMATE CHANGE AGENDA
Recall corrupt Nancy Pelosi who blamed Climate Change for fires just recently:
According to the progressives, fires are caused by hot weather.
“According to the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, things are about to get a lot hotter in the coming decades throughout the world, including northern California.
“Human activities are estimated to have caused approximately 1.0°C of global warming above pre-industrial levels, with a likely range of 0.8°C to 1.2°C,” the report authors said. “Global warming is likely to reach 1.5°C between 2030 and 2052 if it continues to increase at the current rate.”
It’s always been blistering hot in Shasta County in the summer, with multiple days-in-a-row in the hundreds, and there have always been wildfires. But as Westerling’s research demonstrates, the fire season is growing longer and hotter with more large fires throughout the western United States.”
Investigators in the area found that it was more likely a criminal arsonist who started the fires.
The left seems to be unconcerned with solving the real problems that fires cause to residents of California. They have politicized the fires for a far-left Marxist/ environmentalist agenda and that is all they care about.
It is not just the progressive policies of environmentalism but in legal justice as well as mental health that has gotten them into this living Hell. Until California gets serious about the people they choose to run the government, their lives and needs are pretty much meaningless to elite politicians.
