BALDWIN PARK - No one was injured after a fire destroyed a carport at an apartment complex Saturday morning.
The fire destroyed the carport at the complex, 13115 E. Amar Rd., around 8 a.m. February 9. No one was evacuated due to the carport’s distance from occupied apartment units. An unknown number of vehicle’s were damaged, according to Sgt. Shawn Blackburn of the Baldwin Park Police Department.
The apartment complex is jammed into on odd corner of Amar Road, due to its placement near a flood control channel that empties into the San Gabriel River.
The fire was knocked down art 8:17 a.m., according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
Building and safety personnel were called to inspect the integrity of the structure, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.
The damaged carport was recommended to be red-tagged, said Blackburn, who does not believe the fire was suspicious in nature.
