Huge Los Angeles Fire Was Arson, Officials Say
"A wildfire in the foothills north of Los Angeles that has claimed the lives of two firefighters, ravaged more than 250 square miles and destroyed more than 60 homes was caused by arson, the federal Forest Service said.
"The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has begun a homicide inquiry looking for the person or people responsible for the wildfire, which continues to burn.
"The blaze, known as the Station Fire, has burned for over a week in the Angeles National Forest outside Los Angeles. After a forensic investigation, officials with the U.S. Forest Service determined on Thursday that the fire was started intentionally, and they labeled the firefighters' deaths homicides, the Associated Press reported."
