Small fire briefly evacuates ActivSpace



Just back from ActivSpace on Harbor – where the road may still be closed a little while, in front of the building, while the fire investigation wraps up. The fire was out fairly quick; one witness told us it apparently started in a small recording studio on the south side of the building, when some equipment fell and sparked a fire. No injuries that we know of. 3:54 PM UPDATE: Photo added – above, firefighters checking out an elevator-equipment area for any lingering sign of smoke or fire; below, a little bit of the street scene as we walked up. ADDED 4:25 PM: Additional photo at top from Jerry of JetCityOrange, who works in ActivSpace, from just outside the area where the fire happened.

    Please no pictures of scorched amps…we’re very sensitive folk.

    I’m one of the ActivSpacers who got evacuated, and was overwhelmed with firefighters — there may have been more of them than there were occupants. But I was certainly glad to see them, just in case things got out of hand.

    There were so many firemen there because the 911 caller said there was an explosion and that about 200 people were trapped by fire on the floors above the fire.
