What Caused The LA & Ventura Fires? Arson?

Was Arson the Cause of the Recent LA & Ventura Fires?

We have received several emails from readers who also are suspicious of arson as the possible cause.  The recent fires seem too close in proximity and also seem like they were all started on the same night.  They also seem like they were started near heavily populated areas and near oil and gas & utility infrastructure.  

I hope police and fire are investigating.  Here are some recent cases of people being arrested for starting fires.  Here is another article suggesting terrorists are setting us wildfires.
