California Woman Driving on Drugs Sparks 450-Acre Wildfire


A California driver’s drug-fueled joyride left her car engulfed in flames and sparked a 450-acre wildfire, authorities said.

Renee Hogan was arrested Sunday after she was stopped east of San Andreas in Calaveras County.

The right rear tire of her 2002 Kia Rio became flat — leaving the rim rubbing against the road and causing a “shower of sparks that was igniting the grass shoulder of the roadway,” California Highway Patrol wrote in an arrest report.

A fellow driver tried to gain Hogan’s attention, to no avail, and eventually drove around Hogan to block her path, police said.
