FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Two cousins charged with accidentally causing the largest wildfire in Arizona history have pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges after reaching an agreement with prosecutors.
Caleb Malboeuf and David Malboeuf each face up to a year in jail and a $10,000 fine after entering pleas Tuesday in federal magistrate court.
The Malboeufs were camping in eastern Arizona last May when their campfire spread outside its ring. High winds whipped the blaze, later dubbed the Wallow Fire, which burned more than 538,000 acres in eastern Arizona and parts of western New Mexico before it was fully contained July 8.
