Pacific Palisades Fire Damages One Home

Thursday, December 07, 2006 |

On Thursday, December 7, 2006 at 9:46 AM, fourteen Companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, three LAFD Rescue Ambulances, one Arson Unit, two Urban Search and Rescue Units, one Hazardous Materials Team, one Helicopter, one EMS Battalion Captain, one Battalion Chief Officer Command Team, and one Division Chief Officer Command Team, under the direction of Assistant Chief Tim Manning responded to a Greater Alarm Structure Fire at 345 Channel Rd. in Pacific Palisades.

The two-story single family home was well involved with fire, as Firefighters arrived on scene. An aggressive offensive attack was immediately initiated by first arriving Firefighters as additional Firefighters provided protection for three nearby homes. The older, wood sided home sustained major damage and suffered a partial roof collapse early in the fire.

Fortunately, no Firefighters were injured and no other homes were damaged. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation and damage estimates are still being tabulated.
