HOLLYWOOD HILLS—On Friday, January 8, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to an apartment structure fire. The fire took place at 1723 N Courtney Ave. at approximately 6:48 a.m.
The fire went on for roughly 1 hour and 56 minutes before being completely extinguished. It took a total of 46 firefighters to put out the flames. There were no reports of any injuries during the incident.
“Excessive storage both exterior and interior are hampering firefighters ability to access the remaining areas with fire,” said Spokesperson Margaret Steward from the LAFD in a statement. “Fire crews prevented the fire from damaging any exposed buildings.”
The LAFD Arson Unit is currently investigating the incident. Crews remained throughout the area to respond to overhaul and to continue their investigation.
Canyon News reached out to LAFD for comment, but was advised to see the alert via the LAFD website for additional details.
