Man sentenced for starting fire to protect pot garden | PressDemocrat.com | The Press Democrat | Santa Rosa, CA.

Law enforcement officials believe he was trying to create a fire break to protect the pot gardens from the blazes that charred hundreds of fires in Northern California.

The fires he started, using a lighter, burned more than 45 acres, according to the Mendocino County District Attorney’s Office.

The cost of fighting those fires was more than $175,000, according to District Attorney Meredith Lintott.
