The first Company to arrive on scene reported a large two-story public school with a second floor classroom well involved with fire. Firefighters using handlines mounted a swift and aggressive interior assault on the flames. With the aid of precise vertical ventilation, they were able to confine the fire to the one classroom at the Santa Monica Boulevard Elementary School, extinguishing the flames in just 18 minutes. There were no injuries. Loss from the fire is estimated at $50,000. The cause of this blaze is under active investigation.
