It was at 1:13 p.m. this past Saturday afternoon when the Santa Clara County Fire Department responded to a vegetation fire near Josefa Lane in Los Altos Hills. They quickly found another, and then another, and then another. There were actually 10 fires in the area, and now the Bay Area News Group reports that one woman has been detained and charged with ten counts of arson for setting the whole lot of them. We see some of the wreckage caused in the tweet above from the Santa Clara County Fire Department. “During the afternoon of Saturday 7/30,” the department notes, “Firefighters found multiple fires burning over a large area. 1 person of interest has been detained.” Per the Bay Area News Group, that person is 25-year-old Paige Marie Turnbull of Vacaville.
