The home contains excessive storage that impedes firefighters' access and provides extra fuel for the fire to burn. Firefighters have been able to keep the fire from spreading to the brush that surrounds the home. ; FS 55; Batt 2; Central Bureau; Council District 1; BC1 BC14 BC2 BC5 CM20 CM22 E1 E12 E201 E203 E212 E220 E227 E235 E250 E27 E42 E44 E55 E56 EA1 EM1 EM11 EM5 HR3 RA12 RA27 RA55 RA56 RA827 RA850 SO1 SQ21 T1 T12 T20 T27 T3 T35 T50 UR27 UR88; CH9; 12 13 15;

KNOCKDOWN GREATER ALARM STRUCTURE FIRE 02/04/2024 INC#0602
KNOCKDOWN Greater Alarm Structure Fire; INC#0602; 12:33PM (lafd.org): 4404 E Toland Pl; https://maps.app.goo.gl/2QDJZ29PQH923YG39; #EagleRock; Firefighters responded to an *ascending* hillside home that was two stories, plus an attic converted to a living space. Crews made access to the structure, advancing hose lines and achieving roof ventilation, but excessive storage inside fueled a rapidly growing fire, which forced firefighters to retreat into defensive mode (fighting from the exterior only). While the structure was a total loss, firefighters successfully defended the nearby vegetation and adjacent homes. Thankfully, both residents and their canine, who were home at the time of the fire, escaped without harm. They will be displaced and Red Cross is responding to assist them, and LAFD will issue a SAVE card (Supplying Aid to Victims of Emergency) for some financial assistance. Ultimately, it took 74 firefighters 57 min to access, confine, and extinguish the flames. No reported injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation. 74 ff 57min; FS 55; Batt 2; Central Bureau; Council District 1; AR1 BC1 BC14 BC2 BC5 CM20 CM22 E1 E12 E201 E203 E212 E220 E227 E235 E250 E27 E42 E44 E55 E56 EA1 EM1 EM11 EM5 HR3 RA12 RA27 RA55 RA56 RA827 RA850 SO1 SQ21 T1 T12 T20 T27 T3 T35 T50 UR27 UR88; CH7; 12 13 15
