Asshole from Utah arrested for setting 4 wildfires in Oregon

37-year-old Christopher Wilson of Salt Lake City is accused of setting four wildfires in Oregon. (OSP)

Absolutely unreal. A 37-year-old man from Utah has recently been arrested for setting four wildfires in southern Oregon last month.

According to the news, Oregon State Police arrested Christopher Wilson of Salt Lake City, and has been tied to four fires along Highway 97 between the area of Lava River Cave and milepost 180 south of La Pine.

While three of the fires were said to be contained at less than 2 acres, the 4th fire near La Pine known as the McKay Fire grew to approximately 1,219 acres.

Officers were tipped off from the public, and this prick Wilson was identified and arrested Sept. 3 as he entered Oregon on I-84 near Ontario. The story reports he was driving a stolen blue 2016 Hyundai Sonata – go figure.

Wilson is most likely responsible for other wildfires in the Northwest, and officials are hoping to get tips from the public about him. If you by chance saw this guy driving, you’re asked to reach OSP at 503-375-3555.

    I’m from Utah and I want to say, I’m sorry. These are devastating fires and it pisses me off too. We think he’s an idiot and if we could disown him we would. Oregon is such a beautiful state. I FINALLY got the chance to go to Multnomah Falls a few years ago. Absolutely amazing. Again, I’m sorry for such devastation.

    I’m so sorry this happened to y’all. We had horrible fires down here in Texas during our drought and so I know how you are in mourning now for your beautiful forests .
    This fellow is a marginal individual seeking recognition and power through destruction. He will soon be incarcerated with little power but with lots of attention from people just like himself.
