On Friday, November 30, 2001 at 0259 hours nine companies of Firefighters, two Battalion Command Teams and two Rescue Ambulances under the command of Assistant Chief Tim Manning responded to a greater alarm structure fire at 4355 W. Adams Boulevard in the Crenshaw area. First units on scene reported a one-story commercial building with smoke showing from a 50’ x 30’ unit of a three-unit occupancy with a common attic. Firefighters using handlines confined the fire to the sign painting business and extinguished the fire in twenty-six minutes. No injuries were reported. The cause has been determined to be combustibles too close to a heat source. The loss is estimated at $85,000. ($75,000 to structure and $10,000 to contents).
