April 30, 2001

Imperial County firefighters battled a brush fire thought to be an arson near Thompson's Crossing just east of Forrester Road west of El Centro on Saturday.

County fire Capt. John Green said six firefighters responded to the blaze at 8:30 p.m. and had the fire controlled within 11 minutes.

The fire burned a half-acre, Green said, adding crews had to return to the scene this morning after the fire started to rekindle.

Green said the report on the fire states it is suspected arson, but there wasn't much more detail on the blaze.
