WEST LOS ANGELES, Calif. (KTLA) -- The Los Angeles Fire Department's Arson Counter-Terrorism section is investigating a fire that broke out Saturday at an Office Depot store in West Los Angeles.
The fire at the large 1-story building on the 2200 block of Barrington Avenue between Pico and Olympic broke out around 6 p.m. Saturday and took almost an hour to be extinguished, according to Los Angeles Fire Battalion Chief Joe Castro.
Electronics and computer gear were damaged in the blaze.
According to Castro, the fire began in a trash bin outside the warehouse and jumped into the back of the building where many paper goods and electronics were stacked in shelving units.
Some 100 firefighters were able to contain the fire to the storage area, but Castro still estimated a "fairly significant amount" of computer and electronic goods were damaged.
The damage is estimated at 1.75 million dollars. It is unknown when the store will be reopened.
No injuries were reported.
