Fire photographer Rick McClure offered photo of City of Los Angeles (CA) Fire Department (LAFD) firefighters battling a major fire in the downtown Arts district.
According to a report, it took 186 firefighters nearly three hours to fully extinguish the flames that consumed Payman Fabric, a wholesale fabric firm that occupied a 10,360 square-foot, single-story building.
LAFD’s constant rotations enabled crews to save two adjoining businesses. No civilians were injured, according to the report, but three LAFD members required medical care: two firefighters sustained injuries and another suffered heat exhaustion. None of the injuries were deemed life-threatening.
