It was March 26 when firefighter Brent Lovrien and his fellow firefighters responded to an underground fire on Sepulveda Bouleard near LAX. When he forced entry into a locked doorway, sparks from his power saw ignited trapped gases inside causing a large explosion killing him.

Tomorrow, the fire department, Councilmember Bill Rosendahl and community members will honor Lovrien with a dedication of a bronze plaque (as seen above) at the site of the explosion. Rosendahl's office was kind enough to share with us a photo of that plaque that will soon be found on Sepulveda.
