  1. Thanks again to LAFD and all responders to this fire. In Google view it appears that a large frontage area of the home is composed of wood. Would like to know about “access” problems…might be helpful to others living in the area or considering buying or building there.

  2. Address of the house fire is actually 3923 Prospect. The initial address was just of the neighbor who first called it in.
    The access issues were due to locked security gates. The houses on that bend are tightly packed together. Its amazing that the other houses weren’t damaged. Really impressive work by LAFD.

    • Thanks, Douglas. I wonder if there are processes in place for emergency personnel to get into locked security gates.

  3. Thanks to Viva la Maquina and Eastsider for great picture of our LA River Ducks. The drake on right seems to be very inquisitive, perhaps wondering just where the flyer is going to land!
