Man Sentenced for Setting Sequoia Wildfire

A Perris man has been given a nearly seven-year federal prison sentence for setting a 1,600-acre wildfire in Sequoia National Forest.

46-year-old Edgardo Fournier will also have to pay $6.5 million for starting the Nicolls Fire last summer. He was growing over 2,000 marijuana plants in Smith Canyon.
