Search Under Way for Hollywood Arsonist
Source: AP via ABC

Authorities beefed up patrols and urged the public to remain vigilant following a rash of predawn arson fires that set vehicles ablaze, ignited some nearby houses, and left the Hollywood area reeling.

Fires were reported in nearly two dozen locations in Hollywood and the neighboring city of West Hollywood during a four-hour period before dawn Friday. In nearly every case, the fire started in a parked car.

Another car fire was reported around 7 p.m. Friday in an underground garage in Hollywood that fire officials were investigating for possible links to the series of arson blazes. Los Angeles Fire Capt. Jaime Moore said that a connection hasn't been ruled out. <snip>

All of the fires were in a 2-square mile area and most were in densely populated residential neighborhoods where residents would likely be asleep.

1. Uodate 1/1/12: Los Angeles on alert after spate of arson attacks
Hundreds of extra firefighters took to the streets of Los Angeles on New Year's Eve following a spate of arson attacks across the city.

Some 35 fires have been started since Thursday, mainly in vehicles parked outside homes.

The former Hollywood Hills home of the late The Doors singer Jim Morrison was among properties damaged as a result. <snip>

Two people were arrested on Friday, but were behind bars when new fires were started on Saturday.
