111-Year-Old Koreatown Building Destroyed in Fire
Firefighters worked for over 30 minutes to put out a blaze that destroyed an apartment building in Koreatown in the early evening last night. City News Service reports that authorities were called to the scene at about 5:28 p.m., to 1017 S. Serrano Ave. near Olympic Boulevard. The 111-year-old building was vacant at the time, and was undergoing renovations. No one was injured, but 10 people had to be evacuated from a nearby residence and several cars and neighboring buildings were damaged.
It isn't clear what caused the building to set fire, but all told it caused about $525,000 worth of damages.
