The Roof, The Roof, The Roof Was On Fire
This evening around 8:30 p.m., firefighters put out a small fire on the roof of Big Lots, on the corner of San Fernando Mission and Woodley. The fire was the result of torch-down roofing work recently done on the building which caused smoldering that erupted into flames this evening. According to firefighters, it "could have been a big one" if it hadn't been detected quickly. The store was open when the fire erupted, but no evacuation was necessary because smoke was not entering the building.
