YUCCA VALLEY, Calif. (KYMA, KECY) - More than 400 acres were scorched giving firefighters trouble putting out the Elk Fire, but new details suggest the fire was intentionally started.
When deputies arrived, they immediately identified an area where they believe the fire started.
While driving to that spot, deputies noticed a Toyota Prius driving away from the scene, and conducted a traffic stop.
Through investigation, deputies discovered the subjects in the vehicle who were camping and ignited dry bush.
They are each being held on $25,000 bail.
