#SunlandFire - Knockdown Major Emergency Structure Fire 01/21/2021 INC#1535

#SunlandFire - Knockdown Major Emergency Structure Fire; INC#1535; 12:24AM; 8431 N Sunland Bl; https://bit.ly/3o3xe0n; Sun Valley; The combined effort of 111 LAFD personnel, working for more than 3 hours in a well-coordinated combination of offensive and defensive tactics, have extinguished stubborn flame within the 5,736 square-foot vacant and boarded one-story former restaurant (building constructed 1968, last tenant reportedly departed late 2018), a highly compartmentalized space that was well involved with fire and experienced significant structural compromise due to the blaze. Nearby structures were protected from harm, and no injuries have been reported. Though the LAFD RS3 robotic firefighting vehicle is at scene, it remains in standby as an LAFD Excavator commences a teardown of a dangerously unstable exterior wall. LAFD crews will remain at the scene overnight, and are expected to be joined at daylight by an LAFD Urban Search and Rescue unit for a comprehensive secondary search of the premises, and an inspection by the City's Department of Building & Safety. The cause of this major emergency fire remains under active investigation.; FS 77; Batt 12; Valley Bureau; Council District 6; AR1 AR2 BC10 BC12 BC14 BC15 BC5 CM42 E227 E24 E260 E274 E275 E288 E289 E290 E298 E60 E75 E77 E81 E88 E89 E98 EA1 EM14 HE1 HR3 PI1 RA77 RA889 RA98 RS3 T27 T60 T74 T75 T88 T89 T90 T98 UR27 UR88 UR89; CH8; 17 18; Brian Humphrey
