On Tuesday, June 6, 2006 at 6:07 AM, fifteen Companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, four LAFD Rescue Ambulances, one Rehab Unit, one EMS Battalion Captain, three Battalion Chief Officer Command Teams, one Division Chief Officer Command Team and Deputy Chief Mario Rueda under the direction of Assistant Chief Ralph Terrazas responded to a Structure Fire at 10202 West Washington Boulevard in Culver City.

The Culver City Fire Department requested Los Angeles Fire Department assistance to battle a fire on Stage 27 at the Sony Pictures Studios.

A Unified Command was promptly established and Fire Suppression resources from both agencies utilized a combination of "Class A" firefighting foam, wet water and multiple handlines to extinguish the flames.

There were no injuries reported to Los Angeles Fire Department personnel.

Both the cause of the blaze and dollar loss will be determined by Culver City Fire Department officials.

Darleene,

Thanks for finding time in your busy evening to visit our blog.

The photo you mention was snapped by LAFD Captain Rick McClure, who technically chronicled much of our effort at this joint-agency blaze.

We'll be certain to pass your words of praise along to him, and hope to feature more of his talented work in future LAFD blog posts.

Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,

Brian Humphrey
Firefighter/Specialist
Public Service Officer
