RE: North Hollywood Arson Investigation
Date: July 24, 2011
“The Los Angeles Fire Department’s Arson/Counter-Terrorism Section is working closely with officers from the Los Angeles Police Department's North Hollywood Community Police Station in an active, ongoing investigation. As many as 18 fires appear to have deliberately set over the course of the last several days, dating back to the early morning hours of Thursday, July 21. This series of fires, all listed as “suspicious in nature,” are concentrated in the North Hollywood area.
The LAFD has re-called off-duty investigators to assist with the investigation.
We encourage the public to remain vigilant and ask that anyone with information regarding this arson spree or other suspicious fires, to call the LAFD Arson/Counter-Terrorism Section directly at (213) 485-6095 or the on-duty Operations Control Dispatch Floor Captain at (213) 485-4701.
