Fire erupts at California industrial building

Posted on by SST

Firefighters arrived on the scene to put out an industrial fire that began shortly after 8 p.m in Sun Valley, Cal., according to NBC affiliate KNBC.

The blaze subsided in about an hour, though investigators are unsure of the extent of the damage. According to Los Angeles fire spokesperson Erik Scott, 98 firefighters responded to the call and were ready to assist if needed.

According to KNBC, aerial coverage depicted that a sign at the front of the engulfed building read "Glenoaks Auto Parts."

Reports indicate that no injuries were sustained as a result of the fire. Authorities are currently investigating the cause of the blaze.

The report does not indicate whether the authorities were alerted to the blast by a properly-installed fire alarm system or if they were called by local residents. A fire alarm control system can help prevent the damage and personal injury caused by these types of disasters. A heat detector can also determine whether a rising temperature is indicative of a fire or a naturally-occurring process in the building.
