On April 10, 2014, the LAFD responded to a structure fire at 17800 Vanowen Street, with 9-1-1 calls stating there were people trapped inside. Companies found a one-story home with a garage converted, both well involved in fire and rapidly spreading to a neighboring home. 75 firefighters fully extinguished the stubborn flames in one hour and 16 minutes.
An 18 year-old female was heroically rescued out the window by LAPD Officers and neighbors. She was brought to awaiting Firefighter/Paramedics who treated and transported her to a local hospital in fair condition.
