KNOCKDOWN Structure Fire 07/09/2024 INC#0848

KNOCKDOWN Structure Fire; INC#0848; 02:50PM; 1525 W Glenoaks Bl;; #SanFernando; Over 100 LAFD firefighters responded to the structure fire in a one-story church in the City of San Fernando. Ambient temperatures of up to 105°F were recorded outside, as firefighters went to work cutting open the roof from above, and penetrating the ceilings from below, to make access to the stubborn attic fire. The occupants who were inside the building at the time safely evacuated prior to LAFD arrival. Crews continued battling in the hot weather to eliminate all remaining fire in just over 2 hours. During the incident, four firefighters sought medical help from on-scene paramedics due to heat-related illness. Three of them rested and recovered on scene and then continue working, and one was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation and care. The fire appeared to have been caused by rooftop construction, but the official cause is still under investigation. ; FS 91; Batt 12; Valley Bureau; AP43 AR1 BC10 BC12 BC14 BC15 CE83 CM40 CM42 E12 E203 E227 E229 E274 E275 E287 E289 E290 E293 E295 E298 E60 E63 E64 E7 E73 E75 E77 E89 E91 E98 EA2 EM12 EM15 EM5 FR91 HR3 MH60 PI2 PT2 RA7 RA75 RA77 RA87 RA881 RA89 RA898 SO1 SQ95 T27 T29 T3 T74 T75 T87 T89 T90 T93 T95 T98 UR88 UR89; CH8; 12 17 18; Nicholas Prange
