About this creation
Castle Beach Firefighters were assigned to ventilate the roof. They would be later joined by firefighters from Los Angelego County Fire Department.
Captain Juarez from Pasalego Fire Department and AO Johnson from Castle Beach Fire Department carefully watch the building for possible extension and other dangers.
Mt Studstown firefighters quickly vent the building to allow harmful gases to escape, thus preventing a flashover.
Crews from Castle Beach, Pasalego, and Mt. Studstown encountered a fire in the top floor of a 3-story strip mall during the mid-afternoon hours of February 15, 2018. Thanks to working smoke alarms, everyone inside the building was able to evacuate safely and promptly. An aggressive interior attack of the fire was made, and firefighters were able to confine the fire to the business of origin, fully extinguishing it after 32 minutes. While the cause is still under investigation, the quick work of the firefighters prevented the spread of the fire to the entire block.
