Four suspicious fires hit Moorpark area since September.

Detectives are asking for the public’s help in solving a string of suspicious fires on the South Coast.

Ventura County Sheriff’s investigators say there have been a series of four blazes in the Moorpark area over the last two months. Fires were set in brush, in a trash can, and in the restroom of an apartment complex.

Fortunately, none of the blazes caused serious damage. But, the concern is they may be dealing with a serial arsonist who might strike again.
