Authorities in California have recently charged a 30-year-old forestry student for reportedly starting the state’s devastating Fawn Fire.
According to local media outlets, the mega wildfire has already destroyed more than 8500 acres of land while causing mass destruction to 41 houses.
Moreover, the latest reports from the DA office have even gone as far as suggesting how they suspect that she may be a serial arsonist after she was spotted by officials carrying canisters filled with carbon dioxide, alongside a cigarette lighter too.
The 30-year-old was identified as Alexandra Souverneva who has been slapped with a jail sentence of at least nine years for felony arson to the wildland in California, explained reports. Other details into the investigation revealed how some workers even witnessed her behaving in a strange manner while trespassing into Shasta County.
This is the exact same location identified for the Fawn Fire that sparked on Wednesday and whose effects are being continually seen today.
The 30-year-old was reportedly seen walking out from that area’s brush, speaking to firefighters on how she felt so dehydrated.
On Friday, Alexandra was arrested by authorities who immediately booked her into jail, as soon as she was taken in for an evaluation as well as her treatment.
As the dangerous Fawn Fire continues to rage to new extremes, the state has ordered a mass series of evacuations that threaten up to 2000 structures.
So far, the mega-fire has reportedly caused damage to more than 13 square miles of land which is around 34 square kilometers of rugged terrain, comprising mostly of heavy timber.
Details of the young woman’s past history reveal how she was a forestry student who turned into a shaman and was now working as a yoga teacher. She turned heads when she said that the blaze had accidentally been triggered by her as she made attempts to boil bear urine, just so she could drink it.
