9-in-10 wildfires are set by humans Tuesday, September 15, 2020 9-in-10 wildfires are set by humans Dear Facebook, Before you flag this as fake news, my source is the National Weather Service. NWS reported that 87% of the wildfires were caused by humans this year – 7,072 in California alone. Not all were arson, of course, because humans are pretty careless. But enough are arson to cause concern in light of Democrats setting cities aflame this summer. The last thing we want is the Antifa arm of the Democrat Party expanding into rural areas. ABC reported from Salem, Oregon, "An Oregon man was charged with arson in connection to a raging wildfire that destroyed hundreds of homes, one of the blazes gripping the West Coast with death and devastation. "Michael Jarrod Bakkela, 41, was jailed on two charges of arson, 15 counts of criminal mischief and 14 counts of reckless endangering for a fire that was set Tuesday in the Phoenix area in southern Oregon. "The fire merged with the raging Almeda Fire, and there is significant damage that police are attributing to the fire allegedly set by Bakkela, Jackson County Sheriff's Office public information officer Mike Moran told ABC News." The story also said, "Bakkela initially was arrested on Tuesday for a probation violation on an original charge of unlawful possession of methamphetamine. Authorities charged him Friday in connection with the fire, which he denied starting." The Daily Mail reported, "Stark data showed that 36,383 of the 41,599 fires that have ripped through the nation in the first nine months of the year were started by humans, burning a total of 2,510,743 acres. "California has been hardest-hit by human-caused fires, with a total of 7,072 as of September 10. "Texas was second with 4,170, followed by North Carolina with 1,889, Florida with 1,779 and Arizona with 1,552. "Despite the prevalence of human-caused fires, authorities in Oregon have waded in on rumors that wildfires in the state have been deliberately started by extremist political groups."
