Transient Admits Setting Five Acre Fire

Police say a transient admits setting a five-acre brush fire in a Los Angeles foothill suburb yesterday. But authorities say after questioning 46-year-old Danny Mendez that he has been ruled out as a suspect in previous wildfires. The blaze Saturday morning in the Angeles National Forest foothill area about 30 miles east of Los Angeles was quickly contained.
