87 firefighters tackle Sun Valley commercial fire – Daily News

SUN VALLEY – 87 firefighters fought the flames in a commercial building in Sun Valley for over two hours from late Tuesday to early Wednesday before taking control of the chimney.

Firefighters responded at around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday on the corner of Sunland Boulevard and San Fernando Road, where they discovered a two-story building with severe flames and began countermeasures because of the depth of the chimney, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Nicholas Prange said.

The now vacant building is a former Hope of the Valley thrift store.

Most of the fire pit was knocked down at 1:37 a.m., however, firefighters stayed on site to enter the remaining fire pits through the particles and LAFD Heavy Equipment was called in for help, Prange mentioned.

No accidents have been reported and the cause of the stove is currently being investigated.
