Two people were arrested Sunday on suspicion of looting homes that had been evacuated earlier due to an explosive wildfire.

Jade Ball, 25, and Jack Fannin, 19, of Redding, were found with what police said was evidence tying them to several burglaries.

The article goes on to state the following:

Authorities said Fannin told deputies that the pair went into three homes looking for water, The Record Searchlight reported.

The so-called Carr Fire prompted mandatory evacuations for tens of thousands of people in Redding, a city hundreds of miles north of San Francisco. It has destroyed over 650 houses.

Authorities said a homeowner who stayed behind flagged down an officer after he noticed evidence that people had been in his house.

Officers found a nearby home with evidence of a broken-in door and discovered electronic items stacked by the front door. Police said they do not believe the homeowners placed the items like that before evacuating.
