Tim Olk ¬†was (for a change) in the right place at the right time yesterday morning as the Fire Alarm Office gave out a Still Alarm at 510 S. California. Tim was nearby and arrived just behind Engine 107 to find a two-story ‘ordinary’ building, vacant, with an exposure on one side and a vacant lot on the other. There was heavy smoke blowing out of the second floor. Companies made a good stop and held it at a Still Alarm. Tim submitted a few images and has a gallery with more HERE.
