Trial continues Wednesday for teen accused in Cocos Fire

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Cal Fire investigators testified again Wednesday in the trial of a teen accused of arson in connection with the massive Cocos Fire last May.

The teen confessed that she started a fire near her San Marcos home. Investigators say an ember from that fire spread to a canyon a half-mile away, sparking the Cocos Fire.

The girl's defense attorney challenges that, claiming a transient seen in the area could have started it.

However, investigators testified Wednesday that the area where the fire started was inaccessible and there were no footprints around the point of origin.
