Not All Forest Fires Occur Naturally: Portland Police Arrest Man for Starting Seven Fires

The Portland Police arrested Domingo Lopez, Jr. Sunday afternoon around 4:30pm for starting a small brush fire along the side of Interstate 205. When the police arrived, witnesses identified a man, Lopez, living a tent nearby as the culprit. He had a Molotov cocktail in his possession when the police arrested him.

That’s unconscionable during a dry season in which wildfires are already raging. But it gets worse.

After he was released, the 45-year-old Lopez started six more fires before he was rearrested around 3:30 AM on Monday. When the police picked him up a second time they took him for a mental health evaluation.

Maybe he was just practicing for another night of peaceful protests… it is Portland, after all.
