Hahn Tours Fire Station 164 After Devastating Fire

Supervisor pledges support to rebuild

Huntington Park, CA – Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn was at Los Angeles County Fire Station 164 in Huntington Park where a fire broke out early this morning, destroying much of the station including fire trucks and paramedic units. She toured the damaged station alongside Huntington Park Mayor Karina Macias and Vice Mayor Arturo Flores and pledged her support for the firefighters and the department as they recover from this disaster and continue to serve the communities of Huntington Park and Cudahy.

“I wanted to be out here to see the damage for myself and tell our firefighters and our fire chief that I support them, the County supports them, and that we will provide all the resources needed to rebuild this station and ensure that Huntington Park and Cudahy can continue to depend on the greatest fire department in the world and that response times are not impacted by this tragedy,” said Supervisor Hahn.

Just before 4:00 a.m. this morning, Fire Station 164 personnel were awoken to the sound of a passerby alerting them to a fire in their station. Firefighters were able to fight the fire with assistance from firefighters from nearby stations who responded. Thankfully, no one was injured, and the fire was officially declared controlled at 5:17 am.

“This was a tragedy, and we are going to get to the bottom of what happened, but in the meantime, we are going to take care of these firefighters who valiantly came down from their sleeping quarters in t-shirts and flip-flops and grabbed hoses to fight this fire and defend their home,” continued Supervisor Hahn, in a video posted to Instagram.

Personnel of Fire Station 164 have been temporarily relocated to a station in the City of Vernon. The cause of the fire is being investigated.
