San Fernando Valley Fire Arrest
News reports indicate Suspect in series of San Fernando Valley fires is in custody.
LAPD issued a statement that a woman arrested on a warrant is the subject of an arson investigation involving a series of fires in the Valley. She was taken into custody on 10/23 after police issued flyers searching for a female who was caught on video trying to set a big rig truck on fire in North Hollywood last week.
Officer Mike Lopez of the LAPD said the woman had a warrant for bringing in contraband into a jail. An arson squad is investigating at least five small tree fires and auto blazes that took place across the same general area last Thursday morning and they believe she is the culprit.
