Hogan A No Show In Court Yesterday

Rene Hogan, the woman accused of setting the 450-acre Willow Fire, failed to appear in Calaveras County Superior Court Monday.  Hogan was due in court for another Pre-Preliminary Hearing Monday.  Hogan has plead not guilty to nine charges relating to the fire which was started on Aug. 28 off Mountain Ranch Road near Willow Creek Road, and grew to 450 acres in just three hours.  It damaged a house and caused mandatory evacuations, taking three days to fully contain.  CAL Fire officials determined from multiple witness reports and their own investigation, that the fire was sparked at several locations by a vehicle driven some distance on the rim of a flat tire. Hogan was allegedly the driver of that vehicle.  A warrant was issued yesterday for Hogan’s arrest.
