Crews Control Fire in Vacant Los Angeles Structure

LAFD firefighters work the roof during a fire at a vacant residence


City of Los Angeles (CA) fire crews experienced access challenges while responding to this recent fire in a vacant residence. Area fire photographer Rick McClure shared some photos from the incident.

The fire, which occurred August 24, 2017, in the North Hills section of the city, was in a very compartmentalized structure that was also boarded up, making it difficult for firefighters to get handlines to each section of the building.
