Blaze Damages Cabinet Shop
An early morning fire caused an estimated damage of $20,000 to the structure, tools, equipment and stock of the Alexander Cabinet Shop in the Lennox district of Los Angeles County, Calif.
Battalion Chief Parker Haraden commanded five Los Angeles fire companies which brought the blaze under control. The fire was discovered by a guard at the nearby Zenith Plastic Works. Flames spread to the roof of the plastics firm but firemen kept damage to a minimum at this occupancy.
The cabinet shop had been closed since 5:30 on the Friday before the early Sunday blaze, July 23, and arson investigators were seeking an explanation as to how the fire started.
