LAKEPORT, Calif. (AP) – Police have arrested a man in connection with a Southern California wildfire that has burned 12 cabins and led to some evacuations.

It’s unclear whether he has an attorney.

Clark is being held on a $1 million bail and is set to appear in court Thursday.

He was arrested in connection with the so-called Holy Fire, which has burned more than 6 square miles (15 square kilometers) in the Santa Ana Mountains.



More details about Clark’s arrest are set to be released at a 2 p.m. news conference.
