On Saturday, July 07, 2001 at 2258 Hours (10:58 PM PDT), six Companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, three LAFD Rescue Ambulances and one EMS District Captain under the direction of Battalion Commander Andy Fox responded to a Civilian Fatality Structure Fire at 523 South San Julian Street in the Central City area. The first Company to arrive on scene was met by persons waving, but reported nothing showing from a four-story residential hotel. Firefighters made brisk entry into “The Marshall House” to discover moderate smoke on the first floor and light smoke on the second floor of the 74-unit transitional living center. Using handlines, Firefighters quickly confined a fire to one unit on the first floor, extinguishing the flames in just 12 minutes. During fire attack, Firefighters discovered the remains of one adult male within the involved unit. Without vital signs of life, the approximately fifty year-old man was declared deceased at the scene. There were no other injuries. Loss from this fire is estimated at $2,000 ($1,000 structure & $1,000 contents). The cause of the fire remains categorized as under active investigation. The cause, manner and time of the man’s death, as well as his identity will be determined by Los Angeles County Coroner’s officials.
