1:51 p.m.update from the LAFD: 91 LAFD firefighters continue to battle this greater alarm two-story commercial structure fire after almost an hour and a half. After an initial interior (offensive) attack, crews retreated to an exterior position (defensive attack) due to concerns about structural integrity. The roof later collapsed, making it difficult to reach all areas. At least five ladder pipes were flowing concurrently during the height of the fire. The majority of the flames have been knocked down, but there are still inaccessible pockets of fire. Bystanders report that all occupants got out of the vacant building (former dental offices). HAZMAT teams have determine there are no hazards from potential leftover medical equipment. Urban Search and Rescue crews are assessing the structural integrity and developing a plan for extinguishing the rest of the smoldering sections safely. Crews will remain on scene for an extended period of time to dewater the basement level and complete a thorough search
