With the West Coast ravaged by wildfires, an OR man was recently arrested for adding to the devastation.

Law enforcement, including Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts, have tried to bat down unfounded rumors of coordinated arson plans and widespread looting in evacuated areas, saying there was no evidence to back them up. Firefighters quickly extinguished a section of grass that was ablaze along the freeway.

A man was arrested twice in less than 12 hours for setting at least seven fires in Southeast Portland.

"Officers arrested the suspect, who confirmed he lit the fire with the device", the Portland Police Bureau said. Domingo Lopez Jr confessed he caused the fire after creating a Molotov cocktail out of a plastic bottle and a wick.

Lopez was later released and went on to start six more small fires in the early hours of Monday morning.

Nobody was injured and no structures were burnt by the fires.

Police then found the same suspect as the previous evening and arrested him once again, seizing a lighter as evidence.

Lopez was arrested on Sunday around 6:45 PM for reckless burning and second-degree disorderly conduct. After his second arrest, he was sent to a hospital for a mental evaluation. He was issued additional citations for six counts of reckless burning.

Police said arson investigators were following up to see if any other charges are warranted.
