Greater Alarm Structure Fire
Just after 9:00 pm on November 29, 2012, firefighters arrived to 18471 Ventura Boulevard to find thick black smoke billowing out of a cellular phone store, threatening a connected furniture store to the west.
Flames quickly spread through the entire attic of the 70’ x 25’ building, resulting in a 30’ portion of the roof to begin sagging. With approximately 100 firefighters on the scene, a knockdown was declared in 36 minutes.
