The Los Angeles arson investigators are investigating a string of vehicle and trash fires over the past few week. The fires have occurred in and around the Echo Park area.

The first suspected arson fire was reported on Feb. 19. The fire started between midnight and 4 a.m. in the 1300 North Portia St. said Los Angeles Fire Department Senior Arson Investigator David Liske in an interview with CBS Los Angeles. The fire engulfed three city trashcans that also damaged a nearby car.

This was the first of four fires.

In the same morning, another trashcan was set on fire on Sunset Boulevard and McDuff Street, said Liske in an interview with CBS Los Angeles.

On Feb. 25, a vehicle fire was reported in the 1400 block of Portia Street, near Galveston Street. The fire started around 2 a.m. and is also suspected to be arson.

Another incident is suspected to be a failed arson attempt. Leaves were found on a park car at Laveta Terrace and Sunset Boulevard, said Los Angeles Fire Department Battalion Chief Steve Ruda said in an interview with CBS Los Angeles.

“Sometimes, arsonists begin small,” Ruda said in an interview with CBS Los Angeles. “Hopefully each fire doesn’t get bigger.”

The investigation is ongoing and it isn’t clear if there are any suspects currently. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Arson/Counter-Terrorism Section at (213) 893-9850.

River Rescue Called Off

River Rescue Called Off

With the torrential rainfall over the last few days taking its toll on local police and fire personnel, a river rescue was called off Saturday morning after a reported car in the river turned out to only be a concrete barrier.

A jogger, running along the Los Angeles River, contacted fire officials after reportedly seeing a car in the raging river water.

Firefighters responded when they received other reports of a vehicle in the water near the 5 Freeway and Zoo Dr. in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles.

Fire officials arrived on the scene around 8 a.m. and searched the area. Aerial footage showed several Los Angeles City firefighters in the area investigating the reports.

With the wicked weather, there are things you can do to be safe on the roads. Keep your eyes scanning the road ahead, looking for any potential hazards. Slow down, this will help compensate for a car’s longer stopping distance in the rain.

If a car begins to slip and lose traction, don’t slam on the brakes. In the rain, the limited traction will cause brakes to lock up and lengthen a car’s stopping distance.

“We’ll have to wait for the coroner’s conclusion to find out, but the murder does show signs of gang or narcotics influence,” said Lt. Paul Vernon in an interview with CBS Los Angeles.

“The fire fully engulfed the passenger compartment, but never made it to the trunk,” Lt. Vernon said.

The death appears to be gang-related and homicide detectives have taken over the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the police.
