HUNTER CHARGED WITH SETTING CALIFORNIA'S LARGEST EVER WILDFIRE

The Washington Post, Oct. 7, 2004

San Diego - A federal grand jury indicted a hunter who allegedly started the largest wildfire in California history. Sergio Martinez, 34, was indicted on one count of setting timber on fire and one count of making a false statement to a federal officer. Each charge carries a maximum of five years in prison.

The 2003 blaze, called the Cedar fire, killed 15 people, destroyed more than 2,000 homes and charred 273,000 acres stretching from San Diego to the mountains east of the city.
