A person is being questioned by the Los Angeles Fire Department arson investigators in connection to Studio City arson fires.

He appears to be cooperative. Investigators raced over here about 10 minutes ago at Eureka and Ventura Blvd. behind a strip mall.  LAFD has not declared him a suspect, just a person of interest.

Arson investigators with the Los Angeles Fire Department are on the scene in Studio City Friday morning.

Nine fires were set between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. Friday morning all over Ventura Boulevard between Vineland and Tujunga.

The fires were mostly set to dumpsters— and at least one car. 

More details coming.
