CANOGA PARK – The Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) battled a stubborn Greater Alarm Structure fire in the early morning of October 4, 2014.
Just before 3:00 AM firefighters responded to 7000 Topanga Canyon Blvd to find a one-story vacant commercial building with fire through the roof. After forcing entry, an aggressive offensive attack began. However, approximately 20 minutes into the firefight conditions rapidly worsened forcing firefighters into a defensive position. Fire Companies backed out of the interior and used large hose streams to pour water from the exterior.
Nearly 100 firefighters, under the command of Battalion Chief John Drake, extinguished the flames in just over two hours. No one was injured. The cause of the fire is undetermined. The estimated dollar loss is still being tabulated.
