The complete assignment of Firefighters went to every floor looking for the source.

Firefighters using rotary saws, axes, and an inferred camera, finally located some charring in an exterior wall. The assignment which consisted of three engines companies, two truck companies, a rescue ambulance and a Battalion Chief.

After about a half an hour of breaking walls and wetting the area, the fire was considered ‘Knocked Down’ and Battalion Chief Eric Garcia started releasing equipment, so engines that had come to Burbank to man stations from nearby Glendale go return home.
