Officials said they arrested Isiac Renteria, 19, Richard Renteria, 21, Osvaldo Esparza-Guerrero, 20, and Breane Ojeda, 21-- all are from Visalia.
According to authorities in the early morning hours of August 29th, the suspects deliberately set fire to a stolen car which ignited the Pier Fire. Each suspect is charged with aggravated arson, two counts of conspiracy to commit a crime and two counts of unlawful driving or taking of a vehicle.
Because multiple structures were burned and an accelerant was used a special allegation has been added to the arson and conspiracy charges.
If all are convicted on all counts the suspects face a maximum of life in prison.
