On Sunday, September 10th, we had our 48th RV fire on Compton Blvd. The impact from the fire took out power for the majority of businesses on the south side of the street.
What was different on this fire? We now have an assigned arson investigator from LA County Fire. Our firefighters determined this fire was intentionally set. The Arson Investigator was on-scene within 1 hour along with the HOST team.
The vehicle was removed from the location within 3 hours.
Meet Captain Ruelas from LA County Fire. He has been assigned to our area to investigate the RV fires, blocked fire hydrants and other fire safety related issues impacting the East Gardena/West Rancho Dominguez & Willowbrook areas. Our reporting of all the ongoing incidents made this position happen quickly. Thank you to everyone for doing their part by simply reporting the issues.
