Earlier this week, there was a fire in the Agoura/Calabasas area that burned over 80-90 acres of brush, caused evacuations. Called the “Lost Fire”, no buildings were damaged, and there were no injuries.
From the beginning, fire officials suspected arson. In their initial investigation, inspectors found the “point of origin,” and firework incendiary devices near that point. Witness interviews revealed two male juveniles seen running from the scene.
Yesterday, two 15 year old males turned themselves into deputies at Lost Hills Sheriffâ??s Station, admitted to being responsible for the fire, and were booked for Recklessly Causing a Fire. They were released to their parents.
Due to their age, their names are being withheld, and the case now goes before the Los Angeles County District Attorneyâ??s Office for consideration.
