  3. As an eye witnes I would like to report like this

    The first response by fire department was on time possibly a little slow

    As they came the lkpd pulled the hoses out and ran to put out the fire thanks to them a much bigger disaster was averted

    About ten minutes later the rest of the volunteer dept should up with all the hook and ladders

    Hatzolah was there very quick and helped in evacuation of the building
