A fire reported yesterday afternoon around 3:47 p.m. near the Marshall Canyon Golf Course in La Verne is now fully contained, after raging through 95 acres of "thick, heavy brush" that made for challenging work for LA County Fire to combat. Now, authorities have "determined the blaze was the product of arson because it started in two places near a dirt road close to the golf course," according to the Daily News.

Today, with hot, dry temperatures across the Southland, firefighters are keeping a close watch on the burn area to be sure there are no flare-ups that might re-ignite the blaze.
