    Arson Suspected


    The Windy Ridge Fire was declared contained Tuesday after burning 3 square miles of brush and damaging two homes and two outbuildings. Three firefighters also suffered minor injuries. Anaheim Police are focusing their arson investigation on a white Honda Civic that was found allegedly with license plates stolen from Riverside last month.

    Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle issued the following statement:
    “On behalf of the entire Anaheim City Council, I want to express my sincere thanks to all of the brave firefighters and police officers from all over Southern California who helped keep our City safe during the fierce Windy Ridge fire. Your diligent work on the front lines kept hundreds of Anaheim and Orange residents and their property safe, without major incident or injury. We are grateful for your commitment, honored by your service and inspired by your bravery.”

    Fire authorities are warning the Windy Ridge Fire could just be the start of one of the worst fire seasons on record. (CLICK ON: Fire Fighting News: http://www.firefightingnews.com/article.cfm?articleID=27402 ) .
