The man suspected of starting the Holy fire in the Cleveland National Forest was taken into custody on Wednesday and is now being held on a $1-million dollar bond.
51-year-old Forrest Gordon Clark was arrested because he sent out threatening emails warning "this place will burn," before the fires started.
He is being charged with two counts of arson, one count of felony threat to terrorize, and one misdemeanor count of resisting arrest.
As of Thursday morning, the fires have burned over 9,614 acres in the National Forrest. Firefighters are even starting to see the fires rage into Riverside County.
“We expect to bring him to justice for these terrible crimes,” Susan Schroeder, spokeswoman for the Orange County district attorney's office told the Los Angeles Times.
Clark is set to appear in court today.
