Update: KB Home's Ascent Fire; High 300s, Indeed

New, 13 comments

We stopped by the KB Home's Ascent project near the corner of Canoga and Erwin in lovely ash-covered Warner Center. Above: Snaps from the reconnaissance mission. Reader Adam also alerts us to the live web cam broadcasting at the project. Hello Mr. Fireman. We're guessing the smoldering units will need to be reevaluated in terms of pricing.

UPDATE: Los Angeles fire spokesman Brian Humphrey tells KTTV-TV "the fire is burning from the top floor of the construction site, but that the structure will likely be a complete loss." Fox News is reporting that over 200 fireman were on scene and that the fire was reported under control at 10:05 am.

UPDATE: Maybe not a complete loss. SignOnSanDiego is reporting that more than three-quarters of the property appeared to have been spared, he said.
