A final report confirms a faulty catalytic converter is to blame for the Freeway Complex Fire that broke out last November. According to the Orange County Register, fire officials confirmed Monday that hot debris which shot out of a car on the 91 Freeway sparked the blaze.

Officials said they will probably never know the identity of that vehicle.

The Freeway Complex Fire destroyed more than 200 homes in Orange County, including 117 in Yorba Linda.
