Greater Alarm Commercial Structure Fire in LA

Department: Los Angeles Fire Department - [Los Angeles, California]


On Sunday, June 25, 2006 at 5:12 a.m., 10 companies of Los Angeles firefighters, four LAFD rescue ambulances, one arson unit, one urban search and rescue unit, one hazardous materials team, one EMS battalion captain, two battalion chief officer command teams, one division chief officer command team, under the direction of Battalion Chief Evan Williams responded to a Greater Alarm Structure Fire at 6813 North Troost Ave. in North Hollywood.

The first company arrived quickly to discover heavy smoke showing from a multi story 50' x 150' commercial structure. As firefighters gained access and began to attack the fire, firefighters on the roof simultaneously conducted ventilation operations.

The aggressive and well-coordinated efforts of 75 Los Angeles firefighters confined the fire to the structure of origin and brought the flames under control in less than 36 minutes. Fire loss is still being tabulated, while the cause of the blaze remains under active investigation.
