A brush fire that started in Lake View Terrace may have been the result of arson, according to fire officials.

The blaze broke out Saturday on Terra Vista Way near the Angeles National Forest and the 210 Freeway.

The slow-moving fire charred about 5 acres. The steep terrain posed a challenge to firefighters who fought the flames from the air and the ground.

They managed to extinguish the fire in about 50 minutes.

Fire investigators said they found suspicious evidence in the area.

No structures were damaged and no one was injured.
