A fast moving two-alarm brush fire along the 14 Freeway just north of Los Angeles this afternoon was kept to under 15 acres through the aggressive, combined effort by the Los Angeles County Fire Dept. and Los Angeles Fire Department.
At approximately 7:45pm on April 7, 2015 LAFD responded to a reported high-rise structure fire at 1543 W. Olympic Blvd in the Westlake District of Los Angeles. Upon arrival heavy fire was seen from the upper floor with occupants trapped inside and seen in upper level windows trying to escape the flames and smoke. Over 170 firefighters soon arrived to the seen and kept the fire confined to the original floor. After numerous rescues only minor injuries were reported.
At just after 8pm on May 27, 2014 LAFD units responding to 1809 Hancock Street in Lincoln Heights reported heavy fire showing from an automotive scrap yard with explosions reported. They immediately requested two additional task forces ultimately bringing nearly 100 firefighters to the scene. One minor firefighter injury was reported. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
Resources from the Los Angeles Fire Department battled a major emergency fire in two adjacent lumber yards at 11027/29 Sutter Ave. in Pacoima on the evening of January 2, 2014. Downed power lines added to the danger as the bulk of the heavy fire was quickly extinguished with the use of heavy streams from deck guns, aerial ladders and handlines. No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire was unknown at the time of this posting.
