(Los Angeles, CA) -- Three young men believed to have started the massive wildfire burning east of Los Angeles head to federal court Wednesday. Clifford Henry Jr., Steven Aguirre and Jonathan Jarrell have all been slapped with federal charges of unlawfully setting a fire. The three were taken into custody shortly after the Colby Fire began in the hills of Glendora last Thursday. Glendora police say the three were believed to have been throwing paper on a campfire when a breeze kicked up and triggered the brush fire. The Colby Fire destroyed five homes, damaged 17 others and injured six people.
