KNOCKDOWN Outside Fire; INC#1028; 04:11PM; 1420 N Alameda St;; Wilmington; LAFD, with automatic aid from LA County FD, battled a blaze at an outside yard containing shipping containers, tires, and other stored items. Eighty-eight LAFD firefighters used ladder pipes and large hand lines to extinguish the fire in 93 minutes. Explosions heard early in the incident prompted a HazMat investigation, but the those loud noises turned out to be tires exploding, rather than something more dangerous or toxic. Welding materials were found on scene, but all canisters were in tact and did not contribute to the fire. The fire was contained to the yard only, and no structures were threatened. No reported injuries. The cause of the fire is under active investigation by LAFD Fire Investigators and LAPD (Inc #2968).; FS 38; Batt 6; South Bureau; Council District 15; AO1 AO2 AR15 AR21 BC1 BC11 BC13 BC18 BC4 BC6 CE59 CE83 CM32 E205 E21 E233 E248 E264 E285 E36 E40 E49 E5 E64 E85 EA1 EM1 EM13 EM18 H1 HA1 HL1 HR3 JT1 JT3 RA101 RA112 RA36 RA5 RA85 RA90 SH12 SQ48 T33 T48 T5 T64 T85 UR5 UR88; CH7; 12 13; Nicholas Prange
