State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss announced Tuesday that his office would delay the release of a report on the response to the Carmel fires that occurred a year ago Monday.

Lindenstrauss said that the severity of allegations in the report and the potential for new responses to its findings compelled the comptroller's office to postpone its release.
