The flames started just off the Pipeline trail last night. Firefighters worked into the early morning to get the blaze under control. They are still putting out some hotspots.

The fire only charred about two acres.

Investigators believe the fire was human caused, and they have a suspect in mind.

Kathy Jo Pollock, U.S. Forest Service: "We do know it was person-caused and we do know it was intentional."

Police have not made any arrests and they have not released a name or a possible motive for the fire. They do say it was likely started with a cigarette or a match.
