From the Los Angeles Times:

L.A. County sheriff’s homicide detectives trying to find the arsonist who set the deadly Station fire are looking for a man who was already wanted for questioning in connection with a smaller fire in the same general area six days earlier.

Officials are seeking the public’s help in finding Babatunsin Olukunle. Olukunle is sought for questioning in the Lady Bug fire, which broke about Aug. 20 six miles from the Station fire ignition point along California 2 near a ranger station north of La Cañada Flintridge.

A law enforcement source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing, said it was unclear whether Olukunle had any connection to the Station fire but investigators want to talk to him because the Lady Bug fire was nearby.
