Two Major Fires Blocks From Each Other In Los Angeles, Hundreds Of Firefighters Battle The Blazes, Shut Freeways

From the USA Today:
A massive fire at a Los Angeles construction site the size of a city block shut down sections of two major freeways for hours early Monday. 
Hundreds of firefighters battled the blaze, which broke out about 1:10 a.m. PT and could be seen for miles. 
“This is a historic fire, what we as firefighters would call a career fire. It’s huge,” Fire Department spokesman David Ortiz told NBC News. “I really can’t remember a building fire this big and I have been with the department for 13 years.” 
The fire, which shut sections of the 110 and 101 freeways, was being fed by wood framing at a planned seven-story, 1.3 million-square-foot luxury apartment complex. 
Ortiz said he didn’t think anyone was living or working there when the fire started. Fire officials said two other buildings were also damaged, including several floors of a 16-story office tower.

I know that area well.

I drive by there quite often.

That fire is absolutely massive.

Too bad I can't embed that video.
