Several more cars burned in suspected arson attacks in the Los Angeles area early Saturday morning, and authorities investigated if they were connected to nearly two dozen deliberately set blazes a day earlier, police said.
Seven or eight cars burned Saturday in the North Hollywood area, said officer Robert Collier.
He said he didn't have further details of the blazes, but said arson is suspected and there could be a link to the earlier blazes.

Flashback: France’s New Year’s Tradition: Car-Burning
Friday, Jan. 02, 2009
For much of the world, they became iconic of France’s worst social ills: the burned-out carcasses of thousands of cars set ablaze during nearly three weeks of nationwide rioting in 2005. But as yet another orgy of automobile arson on Wednesday demonstrated, the torching of cars in France has not only become an everyday event; it’s also now a regular form of expression for disenfranchised suburban youths wanting to make sure the rest of the country doesn’t forget they exist. And their fiery presence is never felt so strongly as it is each New Year’s Eve the day of France’s unofficial festival of car-burning.
France limits petrol sales for New Year’s Eve
FRANCE is to limit sales of petrol and other combustibles on New Year’s Eve in a bid to curb what has become an annual tradition of revellers torching hundreds of cars, police said.
Youths in the often depressed suburbs of French cities have been torching hundreds of vehicles on New Year’s Eve since the early 1990s in what police say has become a competition to see which area can cause the most damage.
P.S. ... thanx for the 4 plus million.
Should we give a damn about problems in LA?
LA is a festering boil and should just be written off. Only the Big Un will solve the problem that is LA
An order, for police and citizens alike, to shoot on sight anyone who engages in this type of activity ought to keep it from being exported from Calimeximusifornia to other parts of our great nation.
Should we give a damn about problems in LA?
Just about every national trend starts in California and then goes mainstream because it gets written into scripts. Once its on TV as main plot, background or filler material, it grants permission for the rest of America to mimic them. If cars are being burned in California look, a year or two later, for cars to be alight in Peoria.
As racist as this sounds now, it will be mainstream thought once we have the problems France has. We must stop letting Muslims into the country. Radical or not, theyre the pine straw (fuel load) on the forest floor. Once the flames are started by the radicals then the entire fuel load will burn, taking civilizations roots with it.
We can only live as civilized as our neighbors will allow. If a Caucasian woman doesnt dare leave her house without a veil because she might be attacked and raped then she must step back into the ninth century just to buy groceries.
This is uncommonly humorous!
No sympathy here for Hollywood. Let the Muslims burn it to the ground. They asked for it, they deserve it. I hope Bill Maher’s car is ashes by now.
“Just about every national trend starts in California and then goes mainstream”
That used to be the case, but thankfully, no more. CA is a world unto itself now.
Let them try to torch cars in Texas or a few other places. That will last about a New York minute.
I really liked carbeque :-)
Sigh. You might want to rephrase that. I live in NYS. We have a "duty-to-retreat" in this state. If a car's owner gets medieval on some arsonist's hind end, the car owner will be the one prosecuted.
Hmm, maybe I should take a trip down to Bradford, or Birmingham during Ramadan, and burn me up a few cars.
"You know, some people are making a big deal out of it," said one popular singer in tears.
"Who cares? They're not going to go too far with it. Maybe those people are so poor, some of the people who do that they're so poor they've never torched anything in their lives. Let them torch those things for once."
Well played sir ( or ma’am)
This guy was arrested on the 29th. There were more cars torched last night after this guy was arrested.
I'd bet the person(s) lighting cars on fire in in this story have never seen the inside of a mosque.
Oh, ok. Didn’t know that.
So, Godzilla is a girl? That explains so much. : )
So it was a lone white guy setting cars on fire and not mobs of angry Muslim youths? Imagine that.
Watch video. ‘Lone white guy’?
Read the Update:
He was arrested for 3 of the 21 fires. He’s not white, he’s black and apparently working with others.
Investigators and experts said the fires were highly unusual for even a serial arsonist because of the sheer number of fires in a relatively short period of time. Officials have not said how the fires were set or whether they believe one or more people are responsible.
Of particular interest was Samuel Arrington, a 22-year-old from Sunland. Arrington was arrested Thursday on suspicion of starting three fires that day along a stretch of Sunset Boulevard in the same area as several of the fires that erupted hours later. Arrington was never released from custody after his arrest and arson investigators questioned him Friday in search of some link between him and the fires set Friday morning, officials said.
I bet it’s a bunch of Occupy Wherever creeps doing this. He looked like the type who might be in with them.
I dunno. Looked white to me. Maybe a very light-skinned black. Probably a psycho no matter.
and apparently working with others.
Mobs of angry Muslim youths?
sure wish people would realize there are still many conservatives here fighting on the front lines...
Apparently another person was arrested with Arrington and the police aren’t releasing his name.
So many fires so fast. Sounds like a group effort.
I meant from the vid, doesn’t Arrington appear to be one of Holder’s people?
And the mass torchings continued last night after Arrington and his unnamed accomplice were arrested on Thursday.
Wonder if he’s amember of the group that burned all Hummers in car lots in LA?,I think went by the name of ELF but not sure.
Please allow me to be the first to point out that 1 or 2 cars would be a crime... but this many is simply domestic terrorist activity. Eco, islamo, occupio... soro?
Thank God I left Hwd 30+ years ago.
As of this morning, 31 new car torchings were set after Arrington and his unnamed accomplice were arrested.
Most likely muslim youths trying to bring France’s New Year’s car burning ritual to the U.S. in the name of religious freedom.
EVERYONE’S religious freedom ends where my hunk of get-to-my-job begins. Just sayin’...
If conservative ‘youths’ were burning cars for New Year’s celebrations, it would be in the New York Times tomorrow.
And the Washington Post the following day.
The Corrupt Liberal Media is getting obvious...
So, you’re back from Kim Jong Il’s funeral. How was it?
The 17 days is ozero's vacation.
Working for Chevy.
Their new motto
“SEE...OTHER CARS CATCH FIRE TOO!”
A few years ago? They’ve been ongoing for about two decades. See here:
