Rosemead marijuana grow found after report of house fire

ROSEMEAD — A small fire Monday led investigators to find as many as 1,000 marijuana plants growing inside a Rosemead home, officials said.
No arrests had been made early Tuesday in connection with the indoor pot-growing operation, found about 7 p.m. Monday in the 4400 block of Lee Circle, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Tim Murakami said.
Firefighters and deputies responded to reports of smoke at the home and went to investigate what was later found to be a small electrical fire in the garage, the lieutenant said.
Officials discovered the home had been converted into a marijuana farm, with about 800 to 1,000 plants complete with irrigation and lighting, Murakami said.
Detectives were continuing their investigation into who was responsible for the pot, he said.
