    Hey Troll, the fire originated in Oceanside, so it was not likely Gomer. I wonder when they will release the name of the suspect they arrested for suspected arson?

    Jose Antonio Torres Jr., 35, was booked into jail Wednesday morning in connection with a parole violation stemming from an alleged assault in Los Angeles and count of arson has been added.
