Los Angeles Firefighters Battle Small Structure Fire

By Bobby Halton

Los Angeles (CA) firefighters had a good working fire in their hands when they arrived last Sunday at the 1200 block of W. 37th Dr. Task Force 15, Engine 46 first on scene reported a house in the rear of a single-story, single-family dwelling.

Firefighters hit the fire from the A side first, resetting the fire so that firefighters could do forcible entry on a wrought iron door. While forcible entry was being performed on the front door, other crew members quickly went to work ventilating the roof. Los Angeles firefighters reported knocking the fire down in 20 minutes. No injuries were reported, and the fire is still under investigation.
