On January 6, 2003 fifteen Los Angeles Fire companies, 1 helicopter, 2 Battalion Chiefs and 1 Paramedic Rescue responded to a single story dwelling fire. Units were under the command of Assistant Chief W.W. Bisson.

Strong, gusty Santa Ana winds caused a tree limb to break, which severed a power line, starting a fire in the large single story dwelling. High winds hampered firefighting efforts.

The fire was controlled within 52 minutes. One firefighter was treated for heat exhuastion at the scene. Damage was estimated at $300,000.
