Payment schedule set for Wallow Fire restitution

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Two cousins who accidentally started Arizona’s largest
wildfire will have to begin paying more than $3.7 million in restitution next
year.

U.S. Magistrate Mark Aspey outlined the payment schedule in an order issued
late Monday.

Caleb Malboeuf must make minimum payments of $500 a month. David Malboeuf
initially will pay half of that amount, but the figure increases to $500 a month
in January 2016.

The payments that begin on Jan. 15 are in line with what the defendants’
attorneys had suggested during a restitution hearing earlier this month.

Aspey says claims approved for those without insurance will be satisfied first.

The Malboeufs served a weekend in jail and were given community service for
starting the Wallow Fire. It burned 840 square miles in Arizona and New Mexico
last summer.
