Loud sirens interrupted my coffee on National Coffee Day Sunday morning.

Usually, fire trucks tear through my neighborhood because Santa Monica Boulevard or La Brea are blocked with traffic, but this time it sounded like a lot of them and they all stopped right around the corner from me.

The LAFD was responding in force to reports of an apartment on fire at 835 N Fuller Avenue. One street and half of another were filled with fire trucks and at least one ambulance. LAFD says the bulk of fire was in the living room area of one unit. All occupants got out. At least one person was evaluated for possible smoke inhalation, and the cause is under investigation.
