Twenty Years Ago
Nine La Cañada homes sustained damages in two fires that began at the curb and in the front yard of a house at 5016 Angeles Crest Highway. Serial arsonist John L. Orr, an arson investigator for the Glendale Fire Dept., was later convicted of starting the local blazes, as well as in the College Hill fire in Glendale, which burned both sides of the Glendale (2) Freeway and destroyed more than 60 homes. It was determined Orr also started the 1984 Ole's Home Center fire in South Pasadena that killed four people, including a 2-year-old. Orr is serving a life sentence in prison.
