A Joint Arson Task Force has been set up to gather information to help investigators determine how a series of fires have broken out in San Diego this week.
Fire crews have been battling nine fires across the county. Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency on Wednesday, clearing the way for more resources to help local firefighters.
Anyone with any information regarding the fires is encouraged to contact CRIME STOPPERS at 1-888-580-8477. The caller may remain anonymous and a reward may be offered if the information leads to a conviction.
