The fires, which primarily consisted of rubbish or small vegetation, occurred between 3:00 AM and 4:00 AM.

Four similar fires that occurred in the area during April, at first considered a random spree of arson, are now being investigated as work of the same arsonist.

LAFD Investigators are urging residents to be alert for suspicious activity, and to minimize the threat of arson by abating dry vegetation, trash and debris. Property owners are also encouraged to use outdoor lighting, lock vehicles and place rubbish within covered trash cans in well-secured areas to curtail the possibility of arson.

The investigation into these purposely set fires is being led by the LAFD's Arson/Counter-Terrorism Section, working closely with officers from the Los Angeles Police Department's Devonshire 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 office directly at (213) 485-6095.
