    Fire Breaks Out in Abandoned House on N Sierra Bonita Thanksgiving Night

    A huge fire broke out at an abandoned house at 1030 N Sierra Bonita in West Hollywood’s eastside. The fire started at around 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving night. Los Angeles County Fire and West Hollywood Sheriff deputies were on the scene. Both the front of the property and the back were severely burned.

    Dramatic video footage submitted by several WEHO TIMES readers show the back of the abandoned house, which appears to be a garage and an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), engulfed in flames. According to witnesses, one neighboring apartment complex was evacuated. Internet services was down in the area as a result of the fire this morning was up and running by noon.

    According to witnesses, neighbors have complained of squatters at the empty property. West Hollywood Sheriff deputies have been called several times to the abandoned space to remove individuals who were trespassing.

    The cause of the fire is not yet known and no injuries have been reported as of the posting of this piece

    The owner is responsible, but the fire set was likely set by vagrants, and is another example of the plague of unhoused zombies and criminals “living” amongst us.

    Yes probably cooking thanksgiving dinner. Homeless cooking fires have burned down some great buildings in LA, like the Pan Pacific Auditorium.

    There were a lot of trucks on the scene. They did not want a Maui fire on their hands.

    Let’s be clear, this house was not abandoned. It was a vacant house allowed to get run down by the owner of the property who is clearly irresponsible and who most likely violated a ton of West Hollywood ordinances and or laws. The property is valued at more than $1,000,000. People do not abandon $1,000,000+ properties. It’s not that difficult to research who owns the property. If the city received multiple complaints about this property and did nothing then the city is culpable as well.

    I’ll “say something”…….Code Compliance and the Weho Sheriff need to be more diligent at pro-actively (underline “pro-actively’) monitoring and resolving potentially dangerous conditions at abandoned and/or unsecured properties. There, I said something, now what?

    Now we wait for the next fire. It will take them removing charred bodies, or burning down an entire block for them to take this issue seriously.
