Officials in southern California say a car driven by a woman high on drugs has sparked several wildfires that so far have burned 450 acres and prompted evacuations.
Authorities say Renee Hogan was arrested driving on the right rear rim of her 2002 Kia Rio, which was emitting sparks that caused the blaze. Thankfully no buildings have caught fire, but some people have been forced to leave their homes. Hogan’s car was torched by the flames.
The state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says it has filed additional charges against Hogan related to the fires.
