Welders Blamed For Saugus Fire

Grinding from a welding job at a construction site caused the raging wildfire that has burned more than 23,500 acres near Saugus in northern Los Angeles County this morning. U.S. Forest Service spokesman Martin Esparza says investigators have ruled it an accident. So far, 2000 people have been forced to leave their homes and six homes have burned.
