An electrical distribution line that fell onto dry brush in a drainage area of Oat Mountain is being blamed for the Sesnon Fire in a preliminary investigation by investigators from LA County Fire, Sheriff's and CalFire.

They cannot confirm why the line, located near Limekiln Canyon Road and Palo Sola Truck Road in unincorporated LA County, fell to the ground, though most people are thinking it is wind. More details are expected to come out as the investigation continues.
