Four More Arson Fires In LA

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Firefighters battled four suspected arson fires this morning at carports in the Los Angeles area.

Department spokesman Capt. Jaime Moore tells The Los Angeles Times that the blazes are in the Hollywood Hills and Laurel Canyon areas.

He says they broke out shortly after 1:30 a.m. and reports of the fires all came out within minutes of each other.

Arson investigators are at each site.

No injuries have been reported and it's unclear whether the fires are connected to a spate of arsons in the Hollywood area.
