The Los Angeles Fire Department was summoned at 11:01 PM on July 22, 2017 to 20851 Sherman Way in Winnetka, where firefighters arrived quickly to find heavy fire showing from a one story 4,452 square foot, four tenant commercial building on the northeast corner of Sherman Way and De Soto Avenue.
One hundred and one firefighters under the command of Assistant Chief Andrew Fox confined the fire to the extensively damaged building of fire origin, extinguishing the flames in just 36 minutes.
