Who is starting these fires? First Corral Fire in Tracy, now Brentwood, other fires in Contra Costs County, Nut Processing Plant in Sutter County, all the other good processing plants throughout USS?

Fake news. This conspiracy thoery has been debunked.
Susan McKelvey, an NFPA spokesperson, noted in an email that national data show the country averaged more than 5,000 fires annually at manufacturing and processing facilities, not just food plants, between 2015 and 2019. She estimated that there have “been approximately 20 fires in U.S. food processing facilities in the first 4 months of 2022, which is not extreme at all and does not signal anything out of the ordinary.”

“The recent inquiries around these fires appears to be a case of people suddenly paying attention to them and being surprised about how often they do occur,” McKelvey said.
