The Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to reports of a large fire at an automotive business on the 13200 block of Prairie Avenue on the evening of March 12. The business was not named, but local media identified it as an auto upholstery shop.
About 100 firefighters were dispatched to the scene, according to Melanie Flores, Los Angeles County Fire Department Dispatch Supervisor. They extinguished the flames, but not before it engulfed the roof.
