Downey, CA—Today, Supervisor Janice Hahn released the following statement after a fire destroyed the Harriman House, a 129 year old historic building on the Rancho Los Amigos South Campus property.  Authorities are currently investigating arson.

“The destruction of the historic Harriman House building is a huge loss to the Rancho Los Amigos South Campus. The Harriman House was a beautiful 129 year old building and an incredible piece of Rancho Los Amigos history. 

 I am concerned about the security of the Rancho Los Amigos South Campus. Three buildings have caught fire on the South Campus property this year and authorities are investigating whether this latest incident is arson.  I am grateful that no one has been hurt in these fires but with several aging empty buildings on this property, we must take steps to better protect this area.”
