2 Arrested In Brush Fires Near 118 Freeway

GRANADA HILLS (CBSLA) — Police have arrested two people on suspicion of arson Tuesday after two brush fires broke out along a section of the Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway in Granada Hills.

Both fires were reported about 8 a.m. – the first burning a half acre of brush near the westbound freeway at Hayvenhurst Avenue and a smaller one that broke out near the eastbound freeway at Woodley Avenue, according to
the California Highway Patrol.

The fire was fully contained and all active flame was extinguished by 9 a.m.

An LAPD spokesperson confirmed the arrest of two suspects a short time later, but no further details were released.

No structure damage was reported.

Ground crews were handling the firefighting effort, with helicopter crews providing “reconnaissance and command support,” said LAFD spokesman Brian Humphrey.
