Fire Damages Building on James Monroe High School Campus

Friday, November 09, 2012 |

NORTH HILLS - A pre-dawn fire on the campus of James Monroe High School damaged portions of a classroom building early Friday morning.

Summoned by a 9-1-1 call from a passerby who noted smoke at 2:41 AM on November 9, 2012, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded swiftly to 9229 Haskell Avenue in North Hills, to discover fire within a large one-story building on the south side of the campus.

It took the well-coordinated effort of 94 Los Angeles Firefighters just 45 minutes to quell the flames within a wood shop and an adjacent hallway. No injuries were reported.

Monetary loss from the fire is still being tabulated. The cause of the blaze remains under active investigation.
