LOS ANGELES, CA:

12-24-2005 2314 Hours
LAFD Incident #1206
Greater Alarm Structure Fire
3450 East Pico Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90023 USA

Massive Blaze Strikes Eastside Metalworking Firm


On Saturday, December 24, 2005 at 11:14 PM (PST), fifteen Companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, five LAFD Rescue Ambulances, one Arson Unit, one Urban Search and Rescue Unit, one Hazardous Materials Squad, one EMS Battalion Captain, six Battalion Chief Officer Command Teams and one Division Chief Officer Command Team, a total of 109 Los Angeles Fire Department personnel under the direction of Assistant Chief Michael Fulmis, responded to a Greater Alarm Structure Fire at 3450 East Pico Boulevard in South Boyle Heights.

Firefighters responded quickly to a report of "alarms ringing" to discover heavy fire showing from a 75' by 100' one-story commercial building.

The unoccupied business was quickly laddered and Firefighters took to the flat lightweight roof as their colleagues used handlines to mount a bold initial offense within the stucco over woodframe structure. Both
offensive flanks were driven back within moments by fire through the roof and signs of pending structural compromise.

Following a swift and seamless transition to defensive tactics, heavy stream appliances were brought to bear on the massive volume of fire within "Grover Products", a diversified metalworking firm.

The fire was confined to the structure, which suffered partial collapse. The flames were extinguished in just fifty-nine minutes.

There were no injuries.

Loss from the fire is still being tabulated. The cause of this late Christmas Eve blaze remains under active investigation.

Texas FF Critical-Apparatus Struck By Train


A New Summerfield (Texas) FD water tanker was hit by a train today as it responded to the scene of a wildland fire. Officials say the New Summerfield volunteer firefighter driving the apparatus was seriously injured in the accident but was the only occupant of the vehicle. Officials say the fire tanker was crossing the tracks when a Union Pacific train hit it. A hazardous materials unit was sent to the crash site because fuel was spilling from the train's engine. The fire tanker was responding to supply Smith and Cherokee county fire units fighting the grass fire.

Updates will be posted on our News/Updates page at FirefighterCloseCalls.com
