Six Men Accused Of Setting Fires In Oregon

(Undated)  --  At least half a dozen men are facing accusations of intentionally starting fires in Oregon.  The Oregonian reports there's no evidence the suspects were motivated by politics, as conspiracy theories claim.  The newspaper reports one suspect was found setting fires in late July because a member of a local forest protection group wouldn't give him a ride.  Police arrested another suspect late last month after he allegedly threatened to burn down a small town if his girlfriend broke up with him.  A homeless man is accused of setting a string of brush fires along an Interstate in the Portland area earlier this month.
