Rick McClure submitted these images from a fatal fire last week in North Hollywood.
One man died and a woman was injured, when a fast-moving fire swept through their home Wednesday evening. The Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) was called at 8:13 PM on October 16, 2013 to 6904 Agnes Avenue in North Hollywood. Firefighters arrived quickly to discover heavy flames throughout the front portion of an 87 year-old, one-story home, with reports of people trapped inside.
Companies found a woman outside the home, who told them a smoke alarm sounded, and she discovered a well-involved fire the living room where her husband was last known to be.
Forty-four firefighters under the command of Battalion Chief Mark Akahoshi extinguished the blaze within fifteen minutes. While quelling flames, firefighters discovered human remains in the living room, believed to be those of the woman’s missing 79 year-old husband.
