Help Sought in Identifying Cause of Sayre Fire

Thursday, November 20, 2008 |

An investigative team is asking for the public's assistance to help establish the cause of the Sayre Wildland Fire which started on November 14, 2008. Investigators have spoken to witnesses, but are still seeking additional information that may assist with the ongoing investigation into the fire.

Specifically, the Sayre fire is believed to have started in the foothills last Friday night around 10:30 p.m. near the north east corner of Veterans Memorial Park located at 13000 Sayre Street in Sylmar, California. The fire burned 11,262 acres and destroyed hundreds of residences - and is now 100 percent contained.

"We hope someone who saw or heard something, will call with information to assist in determining the cause of this devastating fire." stated Jody Noiron, Forest Supervisor, Angeles National Forest, "Anyone with information is asked to contact the Los Angeles Fire Department 'Tip' line at (213) 485-6095."

The Sayre Fire was set by the County of LA to extinguish endangered species in order to build expansion of Olive View Medical Center and to build a very large DUMP on Federal land.

Anonymous 7:34,

While you are most welcome to your opinion (and we appreciate you sharing it politely), we have discovered no evidence whatsoever to support such an allegation.

Should you have evidence giving credence to that allegation regarding the Sayre Wildland Fire of November 2008, we ask you to share it immediately with law enforcement (local, State or Federal agency of your choosing).

Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,

Brian Humphrey
Public Service Officer
Los Angeles Fire Department
