Update KNOCKDOWN Greater Alarm Structure Fire; INC#0889; 2:47PM; 3045 W Leeward Av; http://bit.ly/38bRRjR; Koreatown; 102 firefighters tracked down fire in the walls, attic, and mansard of a 16,995 sq-ft three-story apartment building (containing 30 units) built in 1924, extinguishing the flames in 40 minutes. Functional "Ponet" doors, which have fire resistance and close on smoke detection, closed to compartmentalize the building, allowing residents to shelter in place in certain areas of the building protected from the smoke. Firefighters took measures to protect furniture and valuables prior to tearing open the walls to chase down the hidden flames and get water directly on the fire. Red cross has been notified to assist with an unknown number of residents who will be displaced. No reported injuries. The cause of the fire is under active investigation; FS 13; Batt 11; Central Bureau; Council District 1; BC1 BC11 BC5 CM22 E11 E13 E20 E211 E226 E229 E6 EM1 EM13 RA11 RA29 T11 T26 T29; CH9; 13; -Nicholas Prange

Hazardous Materials 02/07/2020 INC#0359

Hazardous Materials; INC#0359; 7:54AM; 8350 W Mulholland Dr; http://bit.ly/2ukcv2O; Hollywood Hills West; A medium-weight tanker rolled onto its side on Mulholland. The truck contained 500 gallons of water in one tank and 60 gallons of diluted Metam Sodium (sodium methyl dithiocarbamate, often used as a soil fumigant). Some of the product spilled onto the roadway. LAFD HazMat Task Force 87 responded to identify the substance and mitigate the impact to the immediate area. The leak has been stopped, the spill contained, and is expected to have minimal environmental impact (degrade quickly). The driver of the truck was the only person involved in the traffic accident and has been transported in fair condition with minor injuries (due to impact, not related to HazMat). Mulholland is expected to be closed for the better part of the work day for clean-up operations, between Coldwater Canyon and Laurel Canyon; FS 97; Batt 14; Valley Bureau; Council District 4; BC14 CM42 E278 E287 E41 E97 JT4 RA87 RA97 SQ87 T78 T87; CH8; 12; -Nicholas Prange
