According to multiple social media posts there was a fire yesterday in the Spyglass Hill region of Whittier. Photos and home videos showed smoke rising from behind the Whittier Water Tower. Firefighters at the scene told witnesses that the fire had been deliberately started and law enforcement has detained a suspicious person who was wearing all red. It was not immediately known whether the person was male or female, what ethnicity they were, or whether they were native to Whittier or someone just passing through. Also not known was whether the individual was homeless. Homeless have been behind a lot of the state's wild fires from trying to keep warm.
The rekindled later in the day and fire crews had to return to put it back out.
