LAFD Structure Fire - 6/29/00
SF: STRUCTURE FIREOn Thursday, June 29, 2000, at 1815 hours (6:15 p.m.), nineteen companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, four Battalion Command Teams, and three LAFD Rescue Ambulances, under the direction of Assistant Chief James W. Young, responded to a Major Emergency Structure Fire, at 2282 West Cambridge Street in the West Adam area. First units on the scene reported a four-story building with apartments over one-story commercials and heavy smoke and fire showing from the third floor. Firefighters using handlines made an aggressive attack on the fire, encountering a tremendous volume of heavy smoke and heat on the fire floor. The fire was confined to the one unit and extinguished in thirty-two minutes. Three other units sustained smoke and water damage. As a result of the fire, one female adult suffering from minor smoke inhalation was treated on the scene and transported to Midway Medical Center in good condition. No other injuries were reported. Approximately twenty people were displaced by the fire and assisted by the American Red Cross. The cause of the fire is listed as a malfunctioning electrical lamp. Fire damage is estimated at $100,000 ($75,000 structure and $25,000 contents).
