    Possible concern of the related cause for the strange wildfires at San Diego area this week


    Email communications with the Police Department in Yale University about the possible cause concern for the strange wildfires at San Diego area this week. The confidentiality of this material is up to CNN judgement.

    I copied some updated information for the wildfire situation from CNN and NBC NEWS in the enclosed file.


    Apparently there has been broad doubt here that the wildfires were initiated purposefully from arson (likely by multiple small groups). All these could have been well planned and pre-designed. One unavoidable question is who have been directing and paying them.

    Dear ,


    I don't know if you have known the news for a number of wildfires occurring around San Diego area (north side) starting from the past two days. There were two wildfires at separated spots on Tuesday, and they were increased to six by Wednesday, and reached nine wildfires at separated spots by this morning (Thursday). Here is the related linker for the serious situation at CNN online news: http://www.cnn.com/2014/05/15/us/san-diego-wildfire/index.html?hpt=hp_bn1.


    Even considering the weather is dry in California this period, and the temperature in San Diego has been relatively high this week, there are some suspects on the cause of these wildfires as many people do (from their online comments). First these are WILDFIRES, not initiated from people's homes, but from isolated places (mostly wild fields) where almost nobody would visit (maybe except intent invaders) on these hot days. Secondly, a number of wildfires suddenly came out in a short time (within two days) at separated spots, while it sounded there was no such wildfire in the past months here. No easy cause has been identified for these wildfires. Here I cited two others' comments from online following the report at CNN website:


    “I live in the area, I've read some of the comments below....the conditions are ripe for wildfires, however the randomness of these fires are suspect and I feel, along with others that these are arson...”


    “Since there were no natural causes of these fires present - there have been no lightning strikes - it can be safely assumed that all of these current fires were the result of arson.”


    These are just happening here: people’s house have been burning; at least one person has been killed by the fires; firefighters have been risking their lives to constrain the fires, though more wildfires were initiated randomly; numerous roads have been shut down; a large number of schools were closed on Thursday.



    What is anything specific in my mind? There is certain time-related sequence, either accidentally or sub-consequently.


    On Monday night I sent to certain office in Yale University about some personal opinions for a more unified university in the undergoing University-wide Strategic Plan. I believe that a more unified university will be so beneficial to the University and the entire community.


    On Tuesday I got university-wide message from UCSD that two wildfires were burning rigorously at San Diego area. On Wednesday evening, another message said the number of wildfires increased to six. From CNN this morning, it has reached nine wildfires.


    Is there any correlation or relevance between the initiation of these wildfires and the change for a more unified university? I don’t know at this moment. God must know, and if true, some people know the answer. Eventually the answer will get known to us.


    If the relevance is real, what a ‘successful’ self-demonstration and self-exposure of the evil side of the group in front of the world, without considering others a little.


    If it is real, this is very severe civic terror, and as always the national security force need be informed in order to crash the evil force once it starts to rise from ground.


    God knows the truth for these strange wildfires!
