Greater Alarm Fire in North Hollywood Law Office

Wednesday, March 28, 2007 |

On Wednesday, March 28, 2007 at 9:58 AM, 9 Companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, 2 LAFD Rescue Ambulances, 1 Urban Search and Rescue Unit, 1 EMS Battalion Captain, 2 Battalion Chief Officer Command Teams, 1 Division Chief Officer Command Team, under the direction of Battalion Chief Evan Williams responded to a Greater Alarm Structure Fire at 12650 Riverside Drive in the Valley Village area.

First arriving Firefighters immediately encountered 2-story office building complex with one unit on the second floor well involved with flames. An all-out attack on the fire using handlines, Firefighters were able to access the burning structure and begin an aggressive attack on the fire.

It took 40 Firefighters just 19 minutes to knock down the fire and control the incident. The total loss from the fire is estimated at $80,000 ($50,000 structure & $30,000 contents). The cause of the fire was attributed to persons using a roofing torch above the unit of the fire involvement.
