Details about the fire are on the Channel 6 website.

SD Police, the Metro Arson Strike Team, FBI and ATF are investigating the fire.  There is no evidence at this point that the Birney fire is connected to the other fires in the neighborhood.  The Police have asked that community members not form roving patrols as it could interfere with the ongoing investigation.
