Governor praises firefighting efforts

Posted @ 2:21 PM

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger greeted volunteers this afternoon at the local assistance center at Cuyamaca College in Rancho San Diego. He toured the facility, shaking hands with volunteers and people who had been evacuated.

In brief remarks, Schwarzenegger praised the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the county's Office of Emergency Services and all firefighters. He said he was "extremely impressed with our team so far."

He also repeated warnings that anyone who commits fraud will be prosecuted.

"If anyone uses this situation to commit fraud, they will regret it for the rest of their life," Schwarzenegger said.
