Los Angeles firefighters battle structure fire in Baldwin Hills

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


At 1557 HRS, eleven companies of Los Angeles firefighters, one assistant chief officer command team, four battalion chief officer command teams, four LAFD rescue ambulances, one Hazmat squad, and two arson units, under the direction of Battalion Commander Fred Mathis, responded to a greater alarm structure fire at 4126 W. Jefferson Blvd. in the Baldwin Hills area.

First units on the scene reported a one-story, 50-by-75 commercial building with heavy smoke and fire showing. Firefighters entered the well-involved structure and using handlines aggressively attacked the fire confining it to "South Bay Furniture" a finishing and refinishing business and extinguished the fire in approximately fourteen minutes.

One employee was inside the structure at the time the fire occurred but escaped uninjured. No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is listed as accidental (malfunctioning spray gun). Fire damage is estimated at $120,000 ($100,000 structure and $20,000 contents).
