Investigators learned that the fire was deliberately set by the victim’s ex-roommate as a result of a prior argument. After breaking a front window, the suspect threw an open container of charcoal lighter fluid along with a burning object, possibly paper into the victim’s living room. The victim was able to exit the location and positively identify the suspect as her ex-room mate.

The victim did not suffer any injuries. The suspect is still outstanding.

The target apartment was rendered uninhabitable along with a few neighboring apartments.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department estimated the loss at $300,000.00.
