Warehouse Fire With LACOFD – Duct Work Gone Bad!

By JJohnson | April 27, 2010

This morning at around 8:45am, a call came into the LBFD dispatch center for reports of a structure fire in the area of the 710 freeway and Victoria Street. Initially it was only a one call, passer by, who called 911. Truck 11 was first on scene and reported heavy fire coming from the roof of the warehouse. The building was on the 3100 block of Ana Street, which was in LA County Fire Departments area. They were also sending there own first alarm assignment to battle the blaze. Since the LBFD's T11 was on scene first, and the fire appeared to be on the roof only, they began to place other incoming LBFD units as they arrived to extinguish this fire. Crews began to cut the duct work on the underside of the roof, since the inside of the building was clear of smoke and fire. The LACOFD worked with the LBFD, to stop the spread of this fire and prevent any injuries to civilians or rescue crews. The building used to be a textile manufacture and was in the process of being renovated to become some type of storage warehouse. Repair crews were working on the air conditioning duct work, when the built up grease inside duct work caught on fire. About 20 people were in the building when the call to 911 was made and thankfully they all made it out and were not injured. Total units on scene: LBFD - Engines 9, 12, 13, Truck 11, Rescue 12, BC3, PIO4........ LACOFD - Quint 127, Truck 116, Squad 116, BC 7, BC9, Hazmat 105
