An arsonist believed to have set a dozen fires in Chatsworth on two consecutive Sundays was caught on video during the last day of the spree, Los Angeles fire officials said this week.
Arson investigators released surveillance video of the arsonist that was captured early Oct. 28.
The series of arsons began a week earlier, Oct. 21, said Brian Humphrey, an L.A. Fire Department spokesman.
In many of the cases, the arsonist ignited rubbish, but there also were two car fires among the 12.
Eight of the fires were reported Oct. 21 between 5:49 and 6:32 a.m. The other four were Oct. 28 between 4:53 and 5:42 a.m.
Investigators asked anyone with information to call 213-893-9850 and to call 911 if someone is spotted in the act of setting a fire.
