PACIFIC PALISADES—Firefighters knocked down a Pacific Palisades structure fire on Saturday, November 22, after an arduous 31-minute battle with “stubborn flames,” Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) spokesman Brian Humphrey said in a press release.
At 8:40 p.m., the Ninth Battalion of the West Bureau LAFD responded to a call of a fire blazing off 17098 W Palisades Circle, and encountered the burning flames engulfing the larger part of a three story condominium.
LAFD personnel on scene engaged the inferno, as it swelled up from the chimney of the condominium into its attic, Humphrey stated.
By 09:02 P.M. a total of 31 LAFD Firefighters had been dispatched to the area to quell the flames.
After 31-minutes of relentless offensive, the 31 LAFD crew members were able to snuff out the “stubborn flames.”
By 09:11 P.M., the fire was declared totally “extinguished”, per Humphrey.
No injuries or further property damage were reported.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
