Photo by Silver Lake resident
Firefighters on Wednesday night quickly put out a blaze that charred a vehicle parked in the middle of the 3100 block of Marathon Street in Silver Lake. “One of the neighbors saw a guy stop the car and run out in the middle of the street, and then the thing burst into flames,” said the resident who took the photo above. “It looked like a movie.” The Eastsider is checking with the LAFD to get more details about the fire, which took place at about 10: 3o p.m. Residents reported that no police ever responded to the scene but an officer at the Rampart Division said this morning there were no reports of criminal activity.
