At 5:18 am on February 1, 2016, two employees notified 9-1-1 that there was a fire at 3019 N Fierro Street in Glassell Park. Firefighters arrived on scene to


find a large industrial/commercial area with outdoor combustible storage and a corrugated steel building well involved in fire. Firefighters were met by 25 mph wind gusts fueling the flames and affecting hose streams, large piles of combustible storage (predominately boxed plastic


straws), propane cylinders, and high voltage power lines. Waves of additional firefighters were requested. A defensive firefight commenced, pouring copious amounts of water from the exterior. Approximately 150 firefighters fully extinguished the fire in one hour and 40 minutes. At least three nearby structures on the property were damaged, however firefighters prevented the blaze from spreading beyond the property.
