Of course there is always a chance that things may not be as they seem, at any rate I'm out of here until I hear more..

There seem to be a few homeless camps along Loma Alta. You can see the trails through the bushes and the resulting piles of debris. Not sure if they are related to these fires, though.

Another fire? Anyone know who to report homeless "camps" to? Straight to the non emergency police line, or property owners?

Report homeless camps to the police it's legal.

Property owners can enforce no trespassing. Report to property owners and hope they invoke that.If it's on city property then no dice.

Maybe the culprit hates homeless camps and is attempting to burn them out.
