JUVENILE ARRESTED AFTER A SERIES OF FIRES IN THE BERKELEY HILLS

Berkeley, California (Saturday, June 12, 2021) - On June 11th, emergency personnel responded to four separate fires in the area of Cedar Street and La Vereda Road.  Beginning at 10:22 am, emergency personnel responded to a small grass fire on the 1600 block of La Vereda Road, which neighbors were able to extinguish.  At 2 pm, another fire was reported in the grassy area along Cedar Path (pathway between La Loma Avenue and La Vereda Road).  While handling the Cedar Path fire, emergency personnel learned of a second fire of dried leaves on the 1600 block of La Vereda Road.  At 7:28 pm, emergency personnel responded to a structure fire on the 2700 block of Cedar Street. 

After additional investigation into the fires, emergency personnel were able to identify the suspect as a 12-year-old girl who was later arrested. 

During the warmer months, we must all remain alert of the dangers of fire during this period of increased fire risk.  Thanks to the quick action and reporting of neighbors, fires were able to be extinguished and a suspect later apprehended. 

We are thankful that no was seriously injured by the fires.
