Teen charged with setting 2 Yucaipa-area wildfires
Ricky Sean Lukacs was charged as an adult by the San Bernardino County district attorney's office.
Officials said Lukacs was initially suspected in a string of fires in the area. At the time, authorities said it was odd to have a large number of fires in a small area, suggesting that someone in the area might be setting them.
Lukacs was arrested after witnesses saw him riding his bike away from a fire that had just started in the Crofton Hills area.
The fires prompted evacuations, but no one was hurt.
