KNOCKDOWN Structure Fire 03/28/2024 INC#1186

KNOCKDOWN Structure Fire; INC#1186; 04:57PM; 1310 N Detroit St;; #Hollywood; Los Angeles City and County firefighters responded to a four-story residential building with smoke showing from the rear. Crews made access to the smoke-filled building, instructing residents to shelter inside of their apartment units. Firefighters located one unit on the third floor with contents burning inside, causing the heavy smoke conditions throughout the building. It took the first 50 LAFD firefighters (along with help from LACoFD) 36 minutes to access, confine, and extinguish the flames. Thankfully, firefighter communications with residents (telling them to stay in their units without opening the door to the smoky conditions) kept the many building occupants safe. There were no reported injuries despite the building being heavily occupied. One man later came home from the store to find his apartment destroyed. Red Cross is responding to assist him during this time of being displaced by the fire. The cause is under investigation.; FS 41; Batt 5; West Bureau; Council District 13; BC1 BC11 BC14 BC5 BC9 CM20 CM22 E227 E229 E235 E278 E288 E3 E35 E41 E60 E61 E82 E95 E97 EM1 EM13 EM14 HR3 PI3 RA15 RA41 RA82 RA827 SO1 SQ95 T27 T29 T35 T61 T78 T88 UR3 UR88; CH7; 13 15; Nicholas Prange
