Firefighters battle blaze at historic Union Station


Firefighters early Saturday battled a blaze at Los Angeles’ Union Station, preventing the main historic structure from being damaged.

About 82 firefighters were on the scene. The L.A. Fire Department said the damage was confined to an office next to the main entrance to the storied train terminal on Alameda Avenue.

“Though the fire appeared to have originated in a roll-away trash dumpster, the cause of the blaze remains under active investigation,” the LAFD said in a statement. “A monetary loss from the fire is still being tabulated.”
