Point Mugu -- Arson -- 37 Acres

The Point Mugu fire I talked about yesterday was started at a trailhead and they think it was arson.

It started in a popular hiking area that leads into the coastal mountains.

Luckily it only burned 37 acres and was quickly contained.

The Porter Ranch or Sesnon Fire is 50% contained. There is still a ways to go before that one is out.

Since we get very little rain here in Southern California, the Los Angeles fires have a lot of dry brush to consume. Compounding that, many area have not been burned over for years which makes for denser brush and more fuel.
