Just after 2:00 p.m. this afternoon, the Los Angeles Fire Department reported "a small fire in Griffith Park." A knockdown was called at 2:56 p.m., according to LAFD Spokesperson d'Lisa Davies over the phone, but she did not know the acreage of the fire yet. There are also some unconfirmed reports of a possible suspect in custody, but those are just rumors at the moment. This is the fourth time a fire or fires has occurred to the park since July 27th. Last weekend, seven small fires went ablaze and arson is suspected.
