Brush Fire in Lompoc Riverbed

It was three separate fires, the largest being a quarter acre. I heard there was a report of a woman there, associated with a white dog, who had been setting the fires. I know the sheriff was on their way, but don't know if they found her. Wonder if it could be the same woman you reported on, Roger, a month or so ago downtown SB starting fires....

The identity of the woman suspected of starting fires is known to LPD, the SO and fire investigators. She has recently been living in a parking lot at River Park. Reportedly she told a citizen that she started today's fire.

Good to know, thank you. If she's 'recently' been there, I'd be curious to know where else she's been...
