LAFD Chief On Last Night's Fire: 'A Lot Of Our Firefighters Were Traumatized'
LAFD Chief Ralph Terrazas said last night's big fire and explosion in Downtown L.A. that sent 11 firefighters to the hospital had many in his department distressed:
"A lot of our firefighters were traumatized. I spoke to them directly, and they're holding up. But when one of your own is injured...you can imagine the amount of emotional stress."
"We'll have a more in-depth significant incident investigation team look at this incident to learn everything possible, so that we can learn from this event and share this information with all our firefighters within the LAFD as well as throughout the region," he said.
