The afternoon of this Sunday a five-story commercial building located in Van Nuys broke into flames, as reported by the Los Angeles Fire Department. No victims reported, the fire was controlled in an hour 43 minutes, and the cause is still unknown.

Located on Sepúlveda Boulevard, one block from Sherman Way, in the San Fernando Valley, the building was empty, but a homeless camp It occupied the parking lot. Firefighters had to ask for police support to evict between 50 and 100 tents, and prevent any person from being injured.

The fire spread across all floors, which represented a major challenge for firefighters.

The neighbors had reported the building several times, as they told the local Fox channel, as it represented a danger in the area, since January, when a man was stabbed in the homeless camp.
