An illegal alien living in Colorado was arrested Saturday on suspicion of setting a series of wildfires that consumed more than 40,000 acres and it’s still burning.
Jasper Joergensen, 52 years, was apprehended after the announcement was made at a community meeting, the Costilla County Sheriff’s Office confirmed.
Joergensen is not a U.S. citizen and will be given to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after he faces arson charges, a Costilla County official said at the meeting.
“The initial cause of the fire was human-caused,” the sheriff’s department said on Facebook.
