Fire damages school in Los Angeles

December 28, 2018

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles firefighters have extinguished a fire in a classroom at a Catholic school in Hollywood.

Nearly 60 firefighters responded to the midmorning Friday fire at Blessed Sacrament School on Sunset Boulevard and put it out in about a half-hour.

The Fire Department says that because it occurred within a church facility, protocol requires the House of Worship Task Force to be notified and the blaze will be investigated by an arson task force.
