An Oregon man arrested for reportedly using a Molotov cocktail to start a wildfire was released and promptly taken back into custody after he started six smaller fires.
A statement issued by Portland police identifies the suspect as
Climate Change Domingo Lopez Jr., and alleges he is responsible for “multiple fires burning along the west side of the I-205 freeway.”
Lopez Jr. was arrested on Sunday after using the Molotov cocktail, then apprehended yet again less than 12 hours later with a lighter on his person.
Portland firefighters were able to extinguish three of the fires along the freeway while community members put out the other half. There were no reports of property damage or injuries.

Earlier this week, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden accused Donald Trump of being a “climate arsonist” and suggested if he were to win re-election the suburbs would be burned down.
“If he gets a second term these hellish events will become more common, more devastating and more deadly,” Biden claimed.
“We have four more years of Trump’s climate denial, how many suburbs will be burned by wildfires? How many suburban neighborhoods will have been flooded out? How many suburbs will have been blown away in superstorm?” he asked.
In reality, a lack of law and order and Democrat-supported catch and release policies for criminals are what is going to cause the suburbs to burn down.
Just ask Mr. Lopez.
Meanwhile, Democrats use things we can’t control (the weather) to try to scare us into enacting their left-wing agenda
They’ve enacted it in CA. They have the Green New Deal
And millions lose power, while they can’t even clean up their forests
But it’s always America’s fault

Arson Caused the Wildfires, Not Climate Change
Along with the super-hyperbolic speech regarding climate change, Biden tweeted a message trying to drive home his point that the wildfires you see this year are caused by global warming.
“[President Trump], you know what’s actually threatening our suburbs?” he asked. “Wildfires. Floods. Hurricanes.”
Added the proponent of the Green New Deal, “We need to act on climate. Now.”
Four people have been arrested thus far – two men in Washington state, one man in Oregon and one woman in California – on suspicion of arson in these West Coast areas.
Climate change apparently remains at large.
.@realDonaldTrump, you know what’s actually threatening our suburbs?
Wildfires. Floods. Hurricanes.
We need to act on climate. Now.

Steve Milloy, the founder of JunkScience.com lambasted Biden for delivering “one falsehood after another” during his climate speech.
California wildfires are natural.
— Steve Milloy (@JunkScience) September 14, 2020
He listed the falsehoods off in a statement which included:
- Wildfires were caused by climate change.
- Air quality was killing people.
- Air pollution and COVID was killing even more people.
Milloy adds that Biden seemingly offers no real solutions to the wildfire problem either.
“[Biden] doesn’t mention or even refer to forest management for wildfires,” he tweeted. “California will burn to a crisp under Democrat rule.”
