Five of the twenty largest wildfires in California history were part of the 2020 wildfire season.
Police in California have revealed that the 2020 Markley fire that led to one of the nation’s biggest wildfires on record, along with other fires, was started to cover up the murder of 32 year old Priscilla Castro.
An eight-month criminal investigation conducted by the Solano County Sherriff’s Office and California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection concluded the fire was caused by Arson 2020.
Authorities had earlier declared Castro missing after the burning corpse of 32-year-old missing woman Priscilla Castro on an errand two days before the fire was discovered by a relative of Victor Serriteno.
The Markley fire later merged with a number of other fires to form LNU Lightning Complex, one of the biggest wildfires in state history, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protective Services said.
