The woman arrested on aggravated arson charges after three Portola homes were destroyed by fire Sept. 1 could face more than 30 years in prison.
Hana Saeko Nay, 45, faces felony arson charges with enhancements for burning multiple structures.
She is also charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm as well as vandalism.
The mounting frustration level of area ranchers is almost tangible, like smoke from a fire.
They and other water rights holders are in a fix with the increased state watermaster fees, which for most will rise by more than 400 percent.
The fees will be on the property tax bills this December.
Portola has been plagued with fires these past two weeks, fires set by humans, whether intentionally or by accident. The old Western Pacific Hospital burned to the ground last Wednesday at 1 a.m. and the following morning, at about the same time, another fire was spotted in a small grove of five or six trees below Feather River Middle School and along the fence at the electrical substation on Gulling Street.
