Firefighters Extinguish Mansion Fire and Restore Mount Washington Community

by Stephanie Papp

Helicopters hovered over the 4000 block of Sea View Avenue during the late night hours of October 13, while a constant stream of fire trucks squeezed through the narrow streets leading to the top of Mount Washington. The sound of a huge explosion echoed through the canyon, followed by blue-colored flames blasting to the sky. Windows throughout a massive home imploded from the heat of the raging fire that quickly engulfed the 9,112 square-foot mansion. Fire trucks with screeching sirens could be heard from far down the hill as they made their way to the top of Mount Washington from every possible road. Yet more explosions caused fireballs to shoot into the sky. Yellow, orange, and red flames swallowed the mansion in one bite, resulting in huge plumes of smoke billowing throughout the air. It was a site which Mount Washington residents dread to think of, but are lucky enough to rarely experience.

Activists to Block Construction Today at Marmion Royal Apartments

by LA1 News

The organizers of the Northeast Los Angeles Alliance (NELAA) have announced a construction protest at 7:00 a.m. this morning, at Marmion Royal apartments. The tenants still residing at the Highland Park building, who were caught in a mass eviction process earlier this year after it was sold to Skya Ventures and Gelt Ventures, are dealing with a new threat. The residents are living in their units while property owners proceed with renovation construction activities. The tenants have endured the removal of their laundry facilities, disconnection of air conditioning during the summer, dismantling of their satellite dishes, and a roach and pest infestation, as they claim, at the hands of the new property management team Moss & Company.
