Burbank fire was called on Tuesday at 6:34 pm for a possible apartment fire at 1711 Grismer Ave. The first units on the scene could see smoke but at a hard time at first locating the specific apartment in the massive layout.

According to Batallion Chief Mark Hatch, upon finding the apartment where the fire was located, the Batallion Chief on the scene “requested two additional Engines and a Truck company was called to assist first alarm units. This brought a BC, an engine, and a truck from Glendale to assist.
