West Hollywood experienced three fires on New Year’s Eve.

Just after 11 p.m. the L.A. County firefighters rushed to an apartment building at 1041 N. Hayworth Ave. where two cars were found ablaze in the carport. The fire had started in the cars and spread to the apartment building above. Fire Department arson investigators were on the scene, but it is unclear at this point what caused the fire. No injuries were reported.

Around 9 p.m. a small fire broke out a Barney’s Beanery. Patrons of the bar and restaurant were evacuated to the street while firefighters investigated and put out a small fire on the patio.

There also was a fire at an apartment building at 1036 N. Edinburgh Ave. south of Santa Monica. The fire appears to have penetrated the roof. There currently are no reports on its cause and no injuries have been reported.

what fantasy world do some of these commentators live in? having ‘our own’ fire department or sheriff’s departments do not prevent arson fires in parking garages, or robberies on the streets of this city. and who pays for these new departments of city government? certainly not the affordable housing crowd, or seniors or a chunk of the east side that collects a government check, courtesy of taxpayers. the city is lost. gone are the days of a special city where gays and lesbians and rent control advocates could live peaceably. the city has been turned over to the hipster council-members… Read more »
