The Los Angeles Fire Department was summoned at 7:47 PM on September 2, 2015 to 800 East 9th Street in the Warehouse District of downtown Los Angeles, where firefighters arrived quickly to find heavy fire showing from a 5,880 square-foot one-story commercial building.
Well coordinated fireground operations by 102 LAFD firefighters under the command of Battalion Chief Raymundo Gomez confined the fire to the vacant building, extinguishing the flames in just 24 minutes.
