"A 14-year-old boy was arrested in connection with a brush fire in Saugus that threatened 50 homes in Saugus on Saturday, scorched about 40 acres and injured two Los Angeles County Fire Department camp crew members. Police found and detained the boy and his friend, also 14, after matching descriptions given to them by witnesses who called 911 to report the fire, according to Capt. Mike Parker of the Sheriff's Department's Headquarters Bureau. The friend was released after the other boy admitted that he started the fire when he dropped a barbecue lighter while trying to ignite his marijuana pipe, Parker said. The teenagers, both from Saugus, attempted to stomp out the flames, but they ran away when the blaze grew. Parker said firefighters found a barbecue lighter near where the fire started."
