What’s the problem?
December 8, 2017 – Debra Ann Windholz, 59, was arrested about 6:30 AM Wednesday on 11 counts of arson to forest land, according to the Press Democrat.
Cal Fire released no details regarding how they believe Windholz may have caused the wildfires, which occurred around Lake Berryessa in 2016 and 2017, but have stated she wasn’t involved in the recent firestorm in Napa, Sonoma and Lake counties.
In that series of fires, some 8,400 structures were destroyed, 160,000 acres of land was burned, and at least 42 people died.
Moody’s has estimated the insured losses for property and casualty insurers from the Northern California blazes “will be among the costliest wildfires on record for U.S.”
The investigation into the cause of those fires is still ongoing, and it could still be weeks before the probe is complete and details are released.
