Video from firelensman of the Los Angeles Fire Department dealing with a fire early Wednesday morning at 14660 Arminta Street in Panorama City. Here’s some of the description with the video:
L.A. Firefighters first on scene had moderate smoke showing from the large 100 by 300 ft. one story commercial. As the fire quickly progressed with flames shooting through the roof, Firefighters went into defensive mode, knocking down the fire with wagon batteries, ladder pipes, portable monitors and numerous handlines. The building was a total loss, housing the companies National Displays and Arrow Chrome Plating. Hazardous Material crews remained on scene through the morning due to the chemicals involved.

More than four hours after the flames were extinguished, LAFD crews were summoned to the Los Angeles Police Department’s Valley Bureau Headquarters, four-tenths of a mile northeast of the blaze, where eleven civilian and uniformed workers – who had not responded to the scene, expressed subjective respiratory irritation and general malaise.
One worker was taken to the hospital by colleagues prior to the Fire Department’s arrival. Following a comprehensive medical evaluation by LAFD Paramedics, nine of the remaining ten patients declined further medical treatment or transportation by Fire Department ambulance. One woman was taken by LAFD Paramedics to a nearby hospital for further evaluation. Her condition was not specified.
