Gender party couple facing prison in a deadly California wildfire

Firefighters are watching El Dorado's flames burn on a hillside near a house in the San Bernardino National Forest in Mountain Home Village, California, on September 9, 2020.

Refugio Manuel Jimenez Jr. and Angela Renee Jimenez have been charged with several charges, including manslaughter, in a fire in El Dorado.

San Bernardino County officials said Tuesday that the couple who organized the Gender Party were charged with manslaughter and recklessly set fire, injuring and damaging their homes.
