Authorities Seek Woman Who Reportedly Started Fire

A woman is being sought in the Corning area in connection to a fire that was apparently started intentionally. The blaze started along Highway 99W near Liberal Avenue in Corning at around 3:15PM Tuesday afternoon. Witnesses directed CHP Officers and Tehama County Deputies to a man seen walking into a nearby orchard. He was detained, and apparently told officers that his girlfriend had started the fire. At last word, authorities were still trying to find her. A Cal-Fire official tells us the fire was contained to about a quarter acre of thick weeds and brush.
