Authorities have recommended a woman be charged with arson in connection with starting the Fawn Fire in Northern California. Officials said as firefighters were battling the blaze near Redding on Wednesday, a woman was found trespassing in the area.

Workers at a quarry informed officials of a woman wandering the area of the fire. The woman, who has been identified as 30-year-old Alexandra Souverneva, approached firefighters and told them she was dehydrated and needed medical treatment.

Souverneva reportedly had a lighter in her pocket. She was treated and later interviewed by authorities who determined she started the blaze.
