2 Fires Deliberately Set in Ocean Beach

Firefighters knocked down a fence on fire along Santa Cruz Avenue in Ocean Beach Monday when they got the call to rush to a second fire less than a mile away. 

The second fire started just before 2:30 a.m. in an alley just off Muir Avenue and Guizot Street. A shed and a tree burned in the fire. 

Embers flew across the alley and melted the door frame of a nearby home.

Firefighters used a chainsaw to cut through the side of the shed and get to the fire to extinguish it. 

Neighbor Ed Bebrin said seeing a fire so close to his home was pretty scary.

Investigators believe the two fires were connected.
