The Sheriff's Bomb/Arson Unit and San Diego County Crime Stoppers are asking for the public's help to help identify and locate the suspects responsible for starting a small brush fire in Fallbrook.

On July 12 around 12:30 p.m., deputies from the Fallbrook Sheriff's Substation responded to reports of a brush fire in the 2300 block of Green Canyon Road. Firefighters quickly put out the fire which burned about a quarter of an acre and a large fence. Damage is estimated at around $30,000.
