Update: Arsonist strikes again, click here for details.
Venice Beach has an active arsonist amongst us, reported to be a homeless man. Four fires have been set in four days near Rose. One was at a garage in the back alley at 405 Rose right next to DNA. “It also appears the arsonist attempted to set the house on fire but was unsuccessful. All items inside the garage were lost to the fire.” Other fires have included fences and vehicles and they may be related to similar fires including three cars set ablaze at Flower & 7th and the Goodyear Tire on Lincoln.
