Update Structure Fire 10/21/2016

Update Structure Fire; 9:56PM; 4057 Sea View Av; #MtWashington; Despite a dawn-to-dusk effort today by dozens of firefighters, assisted by a trio of cadaver detection canines that led to the movement-by-hand of tons of smoldering debris, Investigators have yet to discover human remains within the tons of burnt rubble perched precariously on a Sea View Avenue hillside that once comprised a 9,111 square-foot three story home that burned fiercely Thursday night. LAFD will remain at the scene again tonight to protect the neighborhood by stabilizing debris and extinguishing hot spots. Early Saturday, the Fire Department will bring in heavy equipment, including an excavator, to continue the dolorous task of deconstructing the home in the hope of finding the remains of an 84 year-old resident who is strongly believed to be deceased in the rubble. The cause of the fire remains under investigation. The men and women of LAFD thank the Mount Washington community for their support, and apologize for any inconvenience this prolonged effort has caused.; Brian Humphrey
