Arson is suspected in a La Verne brush fire in and around Marshall Canyon on Sunday that burned 95 acres.

The blaze was suspicious because it had two points of origins, according to investigators.

“Basically, there were two spot fires with vegetation between the two, and it was off a dirt road,” Los Angeles County Fire Capt. Mike Brown told the Los Angeles Times.

The fire, first sighted at about 4 p.m., was 40% contained by 8 p.m.

No structures were burned by the blaze, which started in the northeast end of the county-owned golf course.
