Palapa Fire - Call for Witnesses to Arson - Last Tuesday, Jan. 3, at about 1:30 AM, someone tried to set fire to the Palapa roof at the blue house on Cerritos Beach. There were 6 adults and 2 toddlers in the house at the time. They would have perished had the arsonist been successful and the guests hadn't been alert.

The arsonist probably used a blowtorch burning the insulation off about 2 feet of video transmission wire carrying microvolts (an attempt to make it look like an electrical fire).

Investigation showed that because the wire carried only microvolts, it would never have created the heat needed to start a fire. Besides that, IF it had been a higher voltage system, the video camera would have quit working, when shorting occurred which was not the case. The camera was still functioning perfectly. Even barring that, if there had been any kind of shorting in the wire, it would have been hot where it plugged into the computer. That point was cold.

Besides all of this, the guests as well as the neighbors next-door heard a popping sound at the fire source just prior to the fire. It was a night of heavy dew (that's why the guests were able to extinguish the fire before it got away), the popping sound was water in the damp palm fronds turning into vapor and exploding from high heat (the way damp wood crackles and pops in a campfire).

Then that evening during Taco Tuesday at Chill 'N Grill someone pushed a 6" piece of hardened wire into the sidewall of my 2009 Subaru Forrester's rear left tire. If anyone witnessed anything pertaining to these events or has any information that would help the police, please report it to them or send the information to cerritosdata [- at -] hotmail.comcerritosdata [- at -]
