Over 127 Los Angeles Firefighters battled a Major Emergency commercial fire for 55 minutes before gaining a knockdown and preventing the spread to exposed buildings.
Given the time of night, the fire had a good head start before being reported. Consequently, it quickly burned through the roof. Due to the high risk to firefighters, Incident Commander, Assistant Bureau Commander (Central) Assistant Chief Donald Frazeur, directed the transition to a defensive operation.
The aggressive, coordinated actions by all members on scene resulted in the extinguishment of the fire while preventing damage to the adjoining buildings. A broken water main was shut down by LAFD and DWP was quickly on scene to address the issue. Flowing water did affect the yards of nearby residential homes but did not cause flooding damage.
