• Three Alarm Fire on San Gabriel Boulevard


    A three alarm fire broke out about 7:22 p.m. on Thursday, May 15 at 205 S. San Gabriel Blvd. Approximately 70 firefighters and 20 plus engines from across the Valley responded to the three alarm fire.

    As of this morning, the Fire Department has completed the overhaul and preliminary investigation of the fire. The three structures (T-Mobile store, empty KTV office space, and the book store) and their contents are a total loss. Estimated value of the structures is $1.5M and the contents is $500K for a total loss of $2M. The building owner has been contacted and will begin the task of cleaning up and securing the property. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

    The two injured firefighters were released from the hospital last night just before midnight. One returned to work and the other will return to work on his next shift. They both checked out perfectly fine and should have no further problems.

    San Gabriel Division Chief Derrick Doehler did an outstanding job of commanding the fire with the assistance of San Gabriel Division Chief Bryan Frieders. All fire employees worked exceptionally hard in very difficult conditions. The assisting fire, police, and utility agencies were integral in containing the loss to the initial fire structures. There were some very close apartment buildings and the bowling alley that were all protected.
