Clackamas County Jail

OREGON CITY, OR (KPTV)- A 53-year-old man was arrested for setting a pile of leaves on fire near the Clackamas County Community Solutions building on Friday.

BLM,ANTIFA have spent all spring and summer trying to set Portland and Seattle on fire. Must be a coincidence the entire state is now on fire. A big shout out to governor Brown and Inslee for all they have done to help.


What's with the string of people getting caught starting fires? They all need to be asked if anybody put them up to it, and for how much. It's beyond coincidental
