Commercial Structure Fire at Pieloon Restaurant

On Saturday, November 6 at 23:58 hours, Downey Engines 64, 62, 61, 63, Truck 611, under the command of Battalion 604 (B/C Gillaspie) with LA County Engine 56 and Santa Fe Springs Battalion 804 assisting, responded to a reported commercial structure fire at Pieloon Restaurant located at 10822 Lakewood Blvd.  Upon arrival, units observed fire and smoke emanating from the eaves and roof area.  Units made entry and employed an aggressive fire attack to stop the spread of fire.  Prior to Fire Department’s arrival, the fire had already progressed into the attic space and it took crews another hour to overhaul and completely extinguish the stubborn attic fire.  Downey Fire Investigators were able to determine the cause as an electrical short with damage to the structure estimated at $30,000 - $40,000.  There were no reported injuries and the restaurant was unoccupied at the time of the fire.
