Firefighters worked to extinguish a 1-alarm fire that broke out in an apartment building in Maywood on late Saturday afternoon.

The fire happened at 215 N. 2nd Ave., at around 4:28 p.m., according to emergency dispatch records. By around 5 p.m., the fire seemed to be contained.

Maywood Fire Chief Craig Bronaugh said that the fire started on the first floor of the building.

“We looked at a 14-year-old to make sure she wasn’t injured,” Bronaugh said on Saturday evening. “She wasn’t transported to the hospital. The family refused treatment.”

Bronaugh said that a fire tech held the fire to the first floor, but the damage was so extensive that the tenants who lived on that floor were displaced. They’re currently being attended to by the Red Cross, he said.

Bronaugh added that, so far, his department has not determined an official cause of the fire, which is still under investigation. VFP

  1. Any fire is horrific. I wonder what they’re going to do with the old burned out building on sixteenth there by Washington Blvd.

  2. Much respect to the police officer that ran in and carried the disabled girl out of the burning building. Thanks go out to that officer for showing true human concern. I recognize this act, and in return will give my genuine respect. Much love to this officer, which I do not know his name.
