GREATER ALARM STRUCTURE FIRE
10020 NORTH FAIRGROVE AV
DATE: 01-23-2006
TIME: 5:03 A.M.
INCIDENT #: 0196

GREATER ALARM STRUCTURE FIRE:


On Monday, January 23, 2006 at 5:03 AM, fifteen Companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, seven LAFD Rescue Ambulances, two LAFD Helicopters, one Deputy Chief, two EMS Battalion Captains, one Arson unit, three Battalion Chief Officer Command Teams, one Division Chief Officer Command Team and other LAFD support personnel, under the direction of Deputy Chief Mario Rueda responded to a Greater Alarm Structure Fire at 10020 North Fairgrove Avenue in the Tujunga/Sunland area. First units on the scene reported a one-story single family dwelling well involved with fire and winds gusting in excess of fifty miles per hour. As the winds fanned hot embers and brands throughout the area, Firefighters immediately requested two water dropping helicopters to assist in downwind observation and structural protection. As a result of the wind driven fire from the original fire, two other structures sustained minor to moderate damage (10011 N. Fairgrove Avenue., minor damage & 10022 N. Fairgrove Avenue., moderate damage) and one motor home at 10046 N. Tujunga Boulevard was destroyed. Two other structures at 10015 N. Fairgrove Avenue. and 10019 N. Fairgrove Avenue. sustained fire damage and are being investigated as possible separate fires starting at the same time as the original fire at 10020 N. Fairgrove Avenue. Firefighters used handlines to aggressively attack and extinguish the fires in approximately one hour and six minutes. Downed power lines that energized a chain link fence and the strong gusty winds presented special concerns for Firefighters during this incident. Two adult females and a teenage male were home at the time of the original fire at 10020 N. Fairgrove Avenue and all three suffered minor smoke inhalation and were transported to Verdugo Hills Hospital in good condition. One Firefighter suffered a facial laceration during firefighting operations when he was struck in the face by a flying object. He was subsequently transported to Olive View Medical Center in good condition. Fire cause is still under investigation. Total fire damage is estimated at $390,000 to include structure and contents.

Major Emergency Structure Fire:


On Monday, January 23, 2006 at 9:58 AM, twenty-five Companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, seven LAFD Rescue Ambulances, three Arson Units, two Urban Search and Rescue Units, one Rehab Unit, one Hazardous Materials Team, one Helicopter, two EMS Battalion Captains, seven Battalion Chief Officer Command Teams, one Deputy Chief, one Division Chief Officer Command Team, and other LA City and LA County agencies, under the direction of Deputy Chief Mario Rueda responded to a Major Emergency Structure Fire at the Intersection of East 8th Street and South Central Avenue in the Central City/Fashion District. First units on the scene reported a large two story produce building with a 150' x 150' portion of the structure well involved with fire on the first and second floors. Due to the wind factor, one helicopter was requested to patrol down wind for hot embers and brands that could ignite other structures. Firefighters entered the first floor with handlines to aggressively attack the fire that was spreading rapidly to the second floor and attic area. During the interior fire attack Firefighters encountered rapid fire spread and a large volume of heat and fire that forced them to withdraw from an interior attack and take up a defensive position on the exterior of the building with handlines and heavy stream appliances. After approximately two-hours and one minute, over one-hundred and seventy Firefighters confined and extinguished the fire in several produce businesses on the first floor of the "7th Street Market" and vacant offices on the second floor. Division walls separating portions of the large structure prevented significant vertical and horizontal fire spread to other uninvolved portions of the building. Shortly after Firefighters had been ordered off a sagging portion of the roof, it collapsed. Firefighter safety, preservation of produce in other parts of the building, the integrity of the structure's roof, floor and walls, the large volume of fire causing rapid fire spread, and downwind observation, were just some of the special concerns of the Incident Commander directing Fire Ground Operations at this Major Emergency Structure Fire. No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is listed as under investigation. Fire damage is estimated at $1,000,000. ($800,000
structure and $200,000 contents)

AUS. FF Killed, Texas App. Rollover, Montreal Update



A firefighter from the Castle Creek Fire Brigade (Australia) was killed and 3 others injured when a wildfire tanker overturned while fighting a wildfire in Central Victoria, Australia yesterday. South Eastern Australia has been slammed by a heatwave for the last 4 days, with temps over 110 degrees, high winds and very low humidity. This has caused many very large out of control wildfires causing civilian deaths and a lot of structural damage as well as losses on farms to crops, livestock etc. According to some firefighters who are on The Secret List, they wrote us and advised that conditions have eased a little today, but are going to worsen again in the coming days with extremely high temperatures and no sign of rain in the next 7 days. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the members of the Australian fire services in their loss.

A brush fire truck in Texas also rolled on the way to a fire last Friday night. Jason Williams a career FF at Haltom City, TX and volunteer at Central Community VFD was responding to a brush fire mutual aid to a neighboring department, Poolville VFD. The truck left the roadway and rolled. Firefighter Williams was hospitalized with a head wound and multiple broken bones. He is doing well and will be released from the hospital in a couple of days.

Montreal UPDATE: There will be a public funeral Thursday for a Montreal Fire Capt. Marcel Marleau, a 28-year veteran of the fire department, who died early Saturday morning as he led his crew investigating complaints of smoke in an apartment building. Shortly after 3:30 a.m., Marleau and his FF's found a smoldering sofa on the first floor of the three-storey apartment and began to evacuate the building. Marleau, 47, became separated from his firefighters when the room "flashed over." Marleau was trapped by the fire and Fire Chief Serge Tremblay said firefighters were unable to reach him despite several attempts. Another firefighter suffered second-degree burns to his face. He was treated in hospital Saturday and released. Marleau, a married father of two, had received several commendations for bravery....and had traded shifts that evening-he was not normally supposed to be working that shift.
