In Store Fire Sends 2 to Hospital
An evening fire in South Los Angeles was the the cause of multiple injuries at a mattress store yesterday. The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the incident at 6:51 pm last night, when the fire occurred at the 1520 West Florence Ave. store.
The fire was substantial, involving flames across the structure which almost extended to nearby structures as well. Other buildings in the vicinity of the fires were a two-story apartment building and a church. Though the fire was quickly extinguished, two individuals involved in the fire suffered minor injuries.
After being involved in extinguishing the fire, a firefighter was taken to California Hospital Medical Center to receive treatment for a severe nail puncture, where he was treated and released. Another individual, a teenage female who lives in the neighborhood, was taken to the hospital after suffering injury from the smoke.
No other injuries were reported, but the cause of the fire is still being investigated by Los Angeles Fire Department. If you have suffered a fire related injury, please call our offices for additional help. You can receive a free consultation by calling 310.882.6810.
