Received from Stacy Magoffin (CERT):

The Cowboy Fire, which started Thursday, September 2nd at 1:13 pm, and burned 822 acres, was started by two illegal aliens who were in distress. They called C4, which is Mexico’s emergency dispatch system and advised them that they had been lost for two days, were stranded, dehydrated, and were going to light a signal fire to attempt to get some help. This information was relayed to the U.S. Border Patrol. CAL FIRE worked with Border Patrol in attempt to locate the individuals, but were unsuccessful, and the two individuals are still at large.

Investigators from CAL FIRE and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service determined that there was evidence near the area of origin, of illegal aliens traveling through that area, which supports this report.
