(Ontario, OR)  --  A man from Utah is accused of starting wildfires in Oregon.  State police say that includes a blaze in the Deschutes National Forest last month that prompted evacuations at Lava River Cave and Lava Lands Visitor Center.  Christopher Wilson of Salt Lake City was indicted last week by a grand jury in Deschutes County on three counts of arson and reckless endangerment.  Investigators are looking into whether he may have been responsible for any other wildfires.
