3 injured in fire at Canoga Park marijuana grow operation

At least 150 firefighters battled a blaze at an apparent marijuana grow operation in Canoga Park that caused severe injuries to three civilians.

The fire was first noticed and reported by firefighter/paramedics who were returning from another call in an ambulance just after noon and saw flames from the building at 8423 N. Canoga Ave.

Firefighters say it appears the building was a commercial marijuana grow operation. Several vehicles parked near the building were also damaged.

Three civilian men suffered “severe” burn injuries, with two in critical condition and one in serious condition.

The Los Angeles Fire Department assigned 150 firefighters to battle the flames at the one-story commercial building. Some explosions were reported from inside the structure.

Firefighters declared a knockdown 75 minutes after they arrived, and they stayed on scene to monitor hot spots and assist with the investigation.

Canoga Avenue between Roscoe Boulevard and Parthenia Street remained closed.
