The man accused of starting last summer’s Robbers Fire in Placer County is out of jail, and he could remain free for good. Bryon Mason was released last month after a judge ruled there was insufficient evidence to try him on felony arson charges. In a preliminary hearing, the judge ruled that the CalFire investigating officer gave ‘less than accurate’ testimony. The District Attorney’s office could file lesser charges, but did not do so in a scheduled court appearance Tuesday. The Robbers Fire burned over 25-hundred acres between Foresthill and Colfax in July of last year.
