The Oakridge Mobile Home Park at Glenoaks and the 210 Freeway in Sylmar has now been labeled a crime scene by the Los Angeles Police Department. According to a live broadcast on KABC-7, the LAPD have just ordered all media personnel out of the area and are focusing on their investigation. They have not made any indication as to the nature of the crime being investigated at the mobile home community or its affiliation, if any, with the Sayre fire. LAFD Captain Steve Ruda spoke to the neighborhood's evacuees gathered at the evacuation center at Sylmar High School at around 10:30 this morning.
