SoCal man in custody for arsons in Madera County

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

A Los Angeles man is in custody for setting at least two fires in Eastern Madera County.

Patrick Moore, 48, faces arson charges. The sheriff's department says he is suspected of setting a fire last Thursday -- about two miles north of the 22 Mile House gas station & mini-mart off Highway 41 in the Coarsegold area.

Authorities believe he is also responsible for a fire the following morning, just north of Yosemite Springs Parkway off Highway 41 also in Coarsegold, which brought the morning commute to a crawl.

Action News was told by authorities Moore was arrested on arson charges just last month in Fresno.
