#LASD West Hollywood Deputies Help Evacuate Residents from Apartment Building

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies from West Hollywood Station, responded to an apartment building on fire on Thursday, August 16, 2018 at 8:23 p.m. 
The incident occurred on the 1200 block of Clark Street in the city of West Hollywood. Deputies arrived at the location and immediately began evacuating people from the two-story apartment complex.  Approximately 10 residents had to be evacuated.
