Police arrest man suspected of starting California wildfire

The Cranston Fire moved toward the mountain community of Idyllwild, threatening hundreds of homes. To the north, in the San Francisco Bay Area, at least one home burned in a fast-moving blaze in Clayton, where houses are spread out around windy roads.

No injuries or evacuations were immediately reported, nor was there any word on what sparked the blaze.

Highway 74 was closed from Cranston Fire Station to Lake Hemet, and Highway 243 was closed between Pine Cove and Mountain Center, according to fire officials.

CAL FIRE Law Enforcement Officers arrested Brandon N. Mc Glover, 32, of Temecula for allegedly setting multiple fires in southwest Riverside County on July 25, 2018.

By late afternoon Thursday, it covered 7,500 acres - or just over 11 square miles - and was still 5 percent contained, according to the San Bernardino National Forest.

Also known as Syrian Civil Defence, the White Helmets operate in rebel-held parts of war-ravaged Syria. Hundreds of them were stuck in a pocket of southern Syria, fearing advancing Syrian government forces.

Scott McLean, a spokesman for the crews battling the blaze, also told the Associated Press that the explosive wildfire has destroyed dozens of homes and reached the city of Redding.

The fire is one of several across California amid a statewide heat wave. He was booked on five counts of arson. Evacuation orders are also in place for Idyllwild. Animals could be evacuated to the San Jacinto Valley Animal Campus at 581 S. Grand in San Jacinto. In mountain communities east of Los Angeles, calmer conditions aided firefighters on the lines of a suspected arson wildfire that forced thousands of people to flee. All of Idyllwild, a quaint town surrounded by pine trees in the San Jacinto Mountains, is being evacuated.

However the air temperatures were expected to reach 91F (33C) amid 57 percent humidity, as temperatures continue to spiral on the USA west coast. One firefighter was killed on July 14, and six others have been injured.

Elsewhere in the state, a huge forest fire continued to grow outside Yosemite National Park.
