LA Port Terminals Remain Closed Due to Fire

On Monday, September 22, 2014, around 6:40 PM, a massive fire erupted underneath a port warehouse in the 800 block of South Fries Avenue, Wilmington. At least two cargo ships were moved to a safe location and terminal employees were evacuated. The Los Angeles Fire Captain said the fire has been contained, but described it as “very, very stubborn and low-burning”. All container terminals remain closed, with no word yet on vessel arrival and cargo availability.
