LAFD Investigators are urging residents to be alert, make note of suspicious activity and minimize the threat of arson by removing dry vegetation, trash and debris. Property owners are also encouraged to use outdoor lighting, lock their vehicles and place rubbish within covered trash cans in well-secured areas to curtail the possibility of arson.
The active investigation into these purposely set fires is being led by the LAFD Arson/Counter-Terrorism Section, working closely with officers from the Los Angeles Police Department's North Hollywood Community Police Station.
Anyone witnessing active fire, fire-setting or imminent danger to life and property is encouraged to call 9-1-1 immediately.
Those with information about this arson spree or other suspicious fires, should call the LAFD Arson/Counter-Terrorism Section directly at (213) 485-6095
or the on-duty Operations Control Dispatch (OCD) Floor Captain at (213) 485-4701.
