Video above from firelensman and below from Nick Colbert (VerdugoScanner) and LOUDLABS NEWS of an apartment fire that left two people dead early this morning in Los Angeles. Here is part of the description from firelensman:
Two persons died after flames tore through a two story apartment house in L.A.'s Echo Park district. LAFD Task Force 20 Engine 6, first on scene encountered heavy smoke and fire from the structure. L.A. Firefighters forced entry into to the first and second floor and were forced back out as flames engulfed the second floor and attic of the older two story apartment house.
Note: While looking for information on this fire I went to LAFD's News and Information website and found a notice that the site and all the LAFD social media platforms are on hiatus. No explanation at this time.
Two people were found dead and 25 others were evacuated after a fire broke out in a two-story Echo Park apartment building early Thursday.
The fire started around 12:15 a.m. in the 1000 block of North Bonnie Brae Street, near Echo Park Lake, authorities said. When firefighters crews arrived on the scene, they were met with intense flames coming from the building, said Brian Humphrey, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department.
It took more than 100 firefighters just under an hour to extinguish the flames, he said.
