Massive Building Fire Blazes in Downtown LA

By Robert Kahn on December 8, 2014 - Comments off

According to a report by the Los Angeles Times, early morning on December 8, a fire broke out in the DaVinci apartment complex in downtown Los Angeles. It eventually grew to the size of a city block, melting freeway signs and shattering windows of nearby buildings. The flames could be seen for miles around.

It took more than 250 firefighters around 90 minutes to squelch the blaze that consumed the apartment tower, which had been under construction at the time and contained 1.3 million square feet of floor space. By the time the fire was contained, it had already damaged two-thirds of the whole building.

Fortunately, no injuries were reported; however, the fire did cause major headaches to commuters in the area since firefighters had to deal with hot spots well into the morning, according to an official with the Los Angeles Fire Department.

At the time of the report, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was still in the process of investigating the cause of the fire. It was not yet known whether arson was involved.

The DaVinci development was part of a series of upscale complexes developed by Geoffrey Palmer, who is known for the Orsini and the Medici. Needless to say, the project will undergo significant delays due to the fire.

At the Los Angeles personal injury law firm of Kahn Roven, our compassionate attorneys have seen the devastating effects of fires all too often. We are glad that no one was apparently hurt in this potentially disastrous incident. The city’s firefighters should be commended for their prompt action and their bravery.
