san Diego police are searching for an unknown suspect who allegedly set a small ground fire in the Torrey Pines area Sunday morning, but whose plan was thwarted by a couple of passing joggers.
According to San Diego Police Department officials, the incident happened around 10:40 a.m. on a path near North Torrey Pines Road at Expedition Way.
Two joggers came upon a small ground fire that a transient had allegedly started. The joggers quickly stomped out the small blaze and called police.
Officials said the suspect took off running and had fled the scene by the time officers arrived. There is no suspect description at this time, officials said.
No one was injured and the fire did not burn much.
This case comes on the heels of nearly a week of devastating fires that have ravaged San Diego County. At one point, nine separate fires burned throughout the city, destroying homes and forcing thousands of residents to evacuate.
One of the most destructive fires, the Cocos Fire in San Marcos, scorched 1,995 acres and consumed more than three dozen homes. It was 85 percent contained as of Sunday morning, and by 11 a.m. all evacuations in that particular fire zone had been lifted.

I think we’re going to find that a lot of these fires were started by “transients.” CA is full of “homeless encampments” where the mentally ill live out their fantasies, kill each other, try to kill others, etc.
Actually, the only person killed in these fires was a resident of a “homeless camp.”
If I was of the pieceful religion, this would be a perfect way to damage my enemies.
I thought these fires were caused by Globul Warming.
Why didn’t the joggers jog after him?.....
Hasn’t some Barak Haram connected group been calling for “Lone Wolf” style attacks in the U.S,?
maybe they were Gallo-runners and the perp put on distance during their walk breaks
