At approximately 7 pm on August 26, 2019, the Team was requested by Mammoth Lakes PD to assist with an evidence search. 3 field teams searched the vicinity of 357 Grindelwald, in the Mammoth Knolls, the location of suspected arson. The field teams completed one pass up and down a steep pumice slope in search of evidence, a reported gasoline can, prior to darkness.
The suspected arsonist reported that he went up to the top of the hill to watch the sunrise and left a gas can somewhere along the way. The search was postponed at darkness, and resumed briefly on the morning of August 27, 2019.
