The first arriving firefighters discovered heavy pressurized smoke and fire showing from the rear of a 70’ x 40’ vacant one story commercial building.
Mounting an aggressive fire attack with a primary search of the structure, crews were pushed back by deteriorating conditions, including a partial roof collapse, leading to a well-coordinated transition to defensive operations.
Ninety-eight LAFD personnel were able to fully extinguish the fire in 52 minutes. There were no injuries. The cause of the blaze is undetermined.
