‘Heavy fire’ hits mini-mall on Corbin Avenue in Winnetka

by Steven Rosenberg

Los Angeles firefighters at the scene Friday morning reported ‘heavy fire’ in a commercial structure in Winnetka, where they were forced to operate in a defensive mode as the vacant structure burned.

Firefighters responded at 6:52 a.m. to the 7200 block of Corbin Avenue, just north of Sherman Way, and found heavy fire at the single-story commercial building, said LAFD spokeswoman Margaret Stewart.

It took 86 firefighters 30 minutes to knock down the blaze, she said.

“Firefighters operated in a defensive mode due to the known safety hazards inside the building — holes in (the) floor and fire through the roof,” Stewart said.

“The building is currently vacant and under renovation,” she said. “The interior is nearly empty with side walls in framing stage, which allowed firefighters access to the seat of the fire from the exterior.”

No injuries were reported. More than 20 LAFD units, from engines to trucks and ambulances, were on scene.
