Echo Park resident Martin Cox captured this image of motorists driving through the flooded intersection of Logan Street and Park Avenue north of Echo Park Lake this afternoon as heavy rains poured down across Echo Park. Meanwhile, a few blocks north, fire crews fought a house fire (pictured at bottom) at the corner of Scott Avenue and Lemoyne Street, blocking off traffic.
* Update: Only minor damage and no injuries as a result of that fire, according to residents.
