Los Angeles structure fire hospitalizes resident

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


At 1631 HRS, six companies of Los Angeles firefighters, one battalion chief officer command team, one battalion EMS captain, one hazmat squad, and one arson unit, under the direction of Battalion Chief Robert M. Rose responded to a structure fire at 11140 N. Jellico Ave. in the Granada Hills area.

First units on the scene reported a large, 3,000 square foot, one-story single family dwelling well involved with fire. With handlines, firefighters entered the structure through the uninvolved portion of the house to make an aggressive attack on the fire when they encountered “pack-rat” like conditions. Making their way through the maze-like areas of the dwelling, firefighters used the handlines to extinguish the fire in approximately 23 minutes.

An adult male was in the house at the time of the blaze but escaped prior to the arrival of the fire department, suffering from minor smoke inhalation and first- and second-degree burns to his hands and feet. He was transported to Northridge Hospital in good condition. No other injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is listed as a “faulty generator” in the home. Fire damage is estimated at $275,000 ($200,000 structure and $75,000 contents).
