The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a call for a Greater Alarm Structure Fire reported shortly after 1 o'clock in the morning at 1014 N Highland Ave [map], the address of LA Dogworks, a kennel self-described as "Los Angeles’ first exclusive dog Mecca," boasting a "state-of-the-art, 10,000 square foot retreat," with year-round full-time care and other amenities. It took 95 firefighters 32 minutes to extinguish the blaze, according to e-mail alerts issued by the LAFD. In the course of battling the fire, personnel were able to rescue "over 106 dogs."
