An industrial business on Lomita Street in El Segundo, California caught fire on Friday at approximately 5:40 p.m., according to reports. The blaze engulfed the building, with the roof collapsing and fully involved in flames. Firefighters used aerial ladders to position above the building with hoses in an attempt to extinguish the fire.
Despite initial efforts, the flames appeared resistant as firefighters continued to drop massive amounts of water through a hole in the roof. There were no immediate reports of injuries.
According to records, the business at this address may be involved in glass and mirror work. The location is situated just a few blocks from the shoreline and is close to several major corporations, including Chevron, Raytheon, and approximately 1-2 miles south of Los Angeles International Airport.
