The San Diego County Sheriff's Department reported that investigators identified a juvenile suspect believed to have started the blaze, which broke out May 14.

The suspect's name was not released, nor did the sheriff's department disclose how the person was identified.  A hearing was scheduled for July 30 at 8 a.m. in Juvenile Court.

The nearly 2,000-acre Cocos Fire leveled at least 36 homes and one business. Among the structures destroyed within 24 hours of the blaze's beginnings near Cocos Drive were 25 structures at the Harmony Grove Spiritual Association, a century-old church retreat.

The fire also forced the evacuation of the Cal State San Marcos campus and temporarily closed numerous schools and businesses.
