If you were driving on the Angeles Crest Highway on the day the Station Fire began--that's Wednesday, Aug 26 around 3:30 p.m.--Los Angeles County Sheriff's Detectives are seeking your help in finding the arsonist responsible for the largest fire in the county's modern history. The blaze broke out near Mile Marker 29 (map). Detectives are hoping to account for all vehicles that passed the spot, according to the LA Times. “Obviously if someone saw something that day we would like them to come forward and speak to investigators. But even if they didn’t see anything we would also like them to contact detectives if they traveled past there around that time,” said Steve Whitmore, sheriff’s spokesman, to the paper. Detectives can be reached at 323 890 5500.
