Three Alarm Structure Fire
127 Arena Street
City of El Segundo

It took El Segundo Firefighters close to three hours to control a blaze that destroyed “Raindance,” a garment business that produced activewear for dancers and cheerleaders. There were also reports of piles of clothing that were donated for the needy crowded in several of the rooms. Firefighters were ordered out of the building and went to “defensive mode” as flames were shooting through the roof of the two story structure. With ladder pipes and numerous handlines firefighters kept the blaze in check, preventing the fire from spreading to adjacent structures and exposures in the rear. The “Third Alarm” brought in Firefighters from Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Torrance and L.A. County to assist El Segundo units on scene. Damage was extensive, there were no reported injuries. The cause of the late night blaze is under investigation.
