Multiple storage units were reportedly on fire in Canyon Country on Tuesday, prompting a quick response from Los Angeles County Fire Department officials.
Fire Department spokesman Henry Narvaez confirmed Tuesday that firefighters had received reports of the storage facility being ablaze near the corner of Oak Avenue and Soledad Canyon Road at 10:55 a.m.
The initial report indicated that the blaze was in a single-story, metal storage facility, and at least four units were involved. However, at least one more was reportedly damaged, according to Fire Department Battalion Chief Paul Stump.
“We had units in the area who noticed smoke coming from a one-story commercial building, and they called in a still alarm fire,” said Stump, meaning that no smoke detectors were used to warn officials of the fire. “Once they arrived, they found five storage units that were impacted by the fire.”
Stump said the units on the scene made an “aggressive” attack on the fire and extinguished the blaze.
“Right now, the cause is under investigation,” Stump added.
The incident was given the moniker the #OakIC.
No injuries were reported.
