forwarded on by Larry Wright by the Los
Castle fire: Officials assess damage to historic venue
officials are trying assess the damage after a greater-alarm
fire ripped through the famed Magic Castle in the Hollywood
Hills on Monday.
Fire crews said the blaze was contained largely to the attic
and walls of the historic venue but that there might be
significant water damage.
There is no immediate cause for the blaze, but one source
told The Times that maintenance had been done in the building
According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, a fire was
reported in the attic of the building at 7001 W. Franklin
Avenue after noon. An LAFD spokesman described it as a greater-alarm
fire and said crews were on the scene trying to put it out.
Several photos on Twitter and television coverage showed
LAFD personnel on ladders and on the roof of the Magic Castle
working on the blaze.
No injuries were reported.
