Update KNOCKDOWN Structure Fire; INC#0254; 6:44AM; 2205 W Venice Bl; http://bit.ly/3bM8J35; Harvard Heights; 71 FF in 15 min. Firefighters found a 7,500 sq-ft two-story center-hallway apartment building built in 1959, with one unit fully involved with fire. Firefighters helped residents evacuate, as they advanced hose lines into the unit, including evacuating one resident who is paralyzed and could not self-evacuate. Firefighters on the roof cut a hole over the fire unit as fire attack companies extinguished the fire below. Firefighters set up blowers to clear the building of smoke, which was mostly kept from spreading through the hall. One patient complained of minor respiratory distress and has been evaluated by firefighter-paramedics on scene and transported to a local hospital. Red Cross has been notified to assist displaced residents. No other injuries.
