The number of fires believed to be linked to an arson spree has risen to 39 across the Los Angeles area, fire officials said Sunday.
A total of 32 fires have been set in Los Angeles and seven others in neighboring West Hollywood since the suspected spree began Friday, Assistant Chief Patrick Butler of the Los Angeles Fire Department said. Seven of those fires occurred Saturday night, with one described as “significant,” though only cars were damaged, fire officials said.
A joint task force comprised of city and county fire officials and police departments is investigating the string of fires.
