California wildfires: Mayor not rushing to judgment on arson suspicions

(CNN) – In Carlsbad, where a fire prompted 23,000 evacuation notices Wednesday, Mayor Matt Hall declined to address some residents' speculation whether arson was behind so many fires in the county.

"We don't have any knowledge of that yet," said Hall. "Our primary focus right now is just fighting the fires, and trying to keep both our citizens safe, and as little damage to our community as possible."
