Structure Fire 08/22/2019 INC#0025

Structure Fire; INC#0025; 1:20AM; 1084 W Leighton Av; http://bit.ly/31WDwV8; Exposition Park; KNOCKDOWN: 53 firefighters extinguished fire under heavy smoke conditions in a one-story home in 34 minutes. Firefighters arrived to find reports of people still inside of the burning structure, that appeared to be a board-and-care. The primary search team found one person in grave condition. As they were pulling the first patient out of the back door, they found a second patient (also in grave condition) just inside the rear exit of the home. Firefighters initiated CPR on scene outside of the house and both patients were transported to local hospitals by firefighter/paramedics. One Engineer working at the pump panel in the street heard reports of multiple patients being rescued and ran around to the rear of the house to assist with pulling them out the back door. He suffered minor smoke inhalation injuries while assisting in the rescue and was transported to a local hospital as a precaution. At least 8 adults and 4 children were displaced by this fire. Conflicting reports say multiple occupants could still be unaccounted for, but no other patients were found in the structure during primary or secondary search (possibly evacuated and have not returned). Red Cross is responding to assist these families during this difficult time. The cause of the fire is under active investigation; FS 46; Batt 13; South Bureau; Council District 8; AR1 AR5 BC13 E10 E15 E215 E226 E266 E34 E46 E66 EM11 PH1 RA15 RA246 RA266 RA34 RA46 RA846 T15 T26 T66; CH7; 12; - Nicholas Prange

Update Traffic Collision 08/20/2019 INC#1065

Update Traffic Collision; INC#1065; 7:05PM; 12850 W Branford St; http://bit.ly/31Pmh82; Pacoima; There are updated medical conditions for the 2 injured women taken to the hospital: The sedan occupant is in fair condition, while the apartment dweller is in serious condition. The dump truck will likely be removed from the structure within the hour, under the watchful eye of more than 50 LAFD Firefighters who have been assigned to the incident. The LA Dept of Building & Safety has red-tagged three units of the 28 unit apartment building as untenable, and will further evaluate the structure when the truck is removed. Because of the physical damage and need to secure all utilities at the building, the (unknown total number of) occupants of all 28 units will be temporarily displaced. The LAFD is shuttling residents to a temporary shelter at Montague Charter Academy (13000 Montague Street, Arleta, CA 91331), for personal comfort and needs assessment. The American Red Cross has been notified. ; FS 98; Batt 12; Valley Bureau; Council District 6; - Brian Humphrey
