Craftsman Burns in Silver Lake
A fire in Silver Lake damaged the inside of craftsmen home next to a church just off Sunset Blvd. early this afternoon. Shortly before 1:40 p.m., an employee at The Living Room, a furniture store across the street from the house, called 911 to report the fire. The fire at 1418 Golden Gate was probably started by a water heater, fire officials said after their preliminary investigation. The first story was well-involved when seven LAFD companies (that's around 40 firefighters) arrived as it extended into the second floor and attic. At 2:08 p.m., the fire was knocked down.
