Officials say juvenile started California wildfire

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Investigators say they have identified a juvenile as a suspect for intentionally starting the most destructive of nearly a dozen wildfires that ripped through Southern California last spring.

The San Diego County District Attorney's office said a hearing has been set for July 30 for the juvenile, whose identity has not been released.

Authorities would not say whether an arrest has been made or provide any further details.

The blaze burned 36 houses and one business in San Marcos, north of San Diego. It spread quickly in dry, windy conditions.

Investigators say the suspect is not believed to be linked to the other wildfires burning at that time.

The wildfires prompted tens of thousands of evacuations and caused millions of dollars in damage.
