Update Structure Fire 09/18/2016

Update Structure Fire; 4:28PM; 8238 W Jayseel St; Tujunga / Sunland; KNOCKDOWN: 26FF in 19 mins. Firefighters faced excessive storage conditions in the residence, made their way through to extinguish the fire in the back of the house and a shed behind the structure (shed was fully involved). Due to conditions, an extensive overhaul will be required. Primary search was clear with no occupants located. First arriving units were told all occupants out. A secondary search is underway to confirm. No injuries reported. Spent bullet casings were found scattered at the structure and a popping sound was heard, indicating possible ammunition was 'cooking off' due to the fire. There was no impact on the firefighting operation.; FS 74; Batt 12; Valley Bureau; Council District 7; Margaret Stewart
