Arson and homicide investigators are looking into the cause of an early morning fire over the weekend at a Southern California business where three people died.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department officials say fire crews responding to a call on Saturday that Molotov cocktails were thrown at a tire shop in South El Monte were unable to save a badly burned man locked behind a gate when they arrived. Crews later found two other bodies.
One firefighter trying to rescue the man suffered burns to his face and is in stable condition at a hospital.
The man’s name is being withheld until his family has been notified.
