On Monday a judge ordered three men convicted of starting the Colby Fire to pay $9 million in restitution to public agencies, insurance companies and residents. An illegal campfire used by the men escaped in January, 2014 and burned 1,900 acres, destroying five homes and 17 other structures, while forcing evacuations in Azusa and Glendora in southern California.
Messrs. Henry and Aguirre were sentenced to several months in prison. Mr. Jarrell awaits sentencing.
Residents near the Colby fire are under a flash flood watch on Tuesday with very heavy rains in the weather forecast.
