LOS ANGELES, CA:
MAJOR EMERGENCY STRUCTRURE FIRE:

On Monday, January 07, 2002 at 1158 Hours (11:58 AM PST), twenty-eight Companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, three LAFD Rescue Ambulances, one LAFD Helicopter, nine Chief Officer Command Teams and various specialized LAFD Units, all under the direction of Deputy Chief Robert Neamy, responded to a Major Emergency Structure Fire at 320 South Willaman Drive in West Los Angeles. The first Company to arrive on scene reported a five-story 150’ X 250’ scaffolding-clad wood-frame condominium building under construction with heavy fire showing. Firefighters skillfully advanced handlines and heavy stream appliances to protect adjacent apartment buildings while a search commenced for several construction workers believe to be trapped by fast moving flames within the tar-paper wrapped and largely windowless structure. Finding no one trapped in the four housing floors over parking, voluminous water streams were quickly brought to bear against the core of the construction project, which already exhibited immense fire involvement and signs of structural compromise. The defensive operation allowed Firefighters to quickly contain the flames and ultimately extinguish the bulk of the fire in 2 hours and 7 minutes. There were no injuries to the more than two-dozen workers on site prior to the fire or to responding Firefighters. Though the structure of origin was unoccupied, as many as 80 families from nearby apartment buildings were displaced as a result of electric utility loss caused by the fire. All were offered temporary placement assistance by the American Red Cross. Structural loss from this fire is estimated to be in excess of $1,000,000. The cause of the noontime blaze remains categorized as under active investigation.

LOS ANGELES, CA:
GREATER ALARM STRUCTURE FIRE:

On Monday, January 7, 2002 at 2353 Hours (11:53 PM PST), eleven Companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, two LAFD Rescue Ambulances and two Chief Officer Command Teams under the direction of Battalion Commander Richard Markota responded to a Greater Alarm Structure Fire at 2301 West Jefferson Boulevard in the Jefferson Park area. The first Company to arrive on scene reported a 70’ x 100’ two story vacant apartments over commercial structure with fire showing from the second floor and attic. Firefighters using handlines mounted a bold and decisive attack on the flames, confining the fire to one upstairs room and a portion of the attic. The fire was extinguished in just 21 minutes. There were no injuries. Structural loss from this vacant building is estimated at $30,000. The cause of the fire is listed as under investigation.
