This year has been terrible for wildfires, but those currently carving a path of destruction in Southern California are getting worse.
A trash can was set ablaze on Olympic Boulevard near Hill Street and quickly extinguished by officers, but before the Los Angeles Fire Department arrived to put out the flames, someone in the crowd grabbed the department's fire hose and threw it into the fire that was burning at the intersection. Students and teachers arrived at Compton High School to find classrooms razed to the ground by arson. A father-of-three is believed to be dead after fleeing the burning building before firefighters arrived.
Normally, such evidence is not left by professionals, and there is no evidence of forcible entry, whether by a professional, such as a fire extinguisher or a fire hose. If you have not made an effort to secure your fire protection system and / or install sprinklers, you should receive a visit to your home or residence from a Compton representative. The installation of fire extinguishers should be completed by an actively licensed fire and sprinkler company. The technician of the fire or sprinkler company should provide a cost estimate listing the costs and charges for necessary repairs and confirm that the system has been tested and tested.
One thing to consider when calculating the cost of a Compton disaster recovery project is the geographical location of your home. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the neighborhood was notorious for gang crime and shootings. The Crips and Bloods were active in an area of nearly 30 square miles, and in 1974 there were 70 gang-related murders.
The Creek and Skirball fires, which are just outside the LA subway area, and the Thomas and Rye fires north of LA have burned more than 116,000 acres combined. The Great Thomas Fire has already burned about 1.5 million acres in Los Angeles County, roughly the same area as Compton.
Total damage from the number of fires in Los Angeles County is up to $1.5 million and only about $300,000.
Unfortunately, some of the worst neighborhoods in Los Angeles are hit by arson attacks in broad daylight, with arsonists targeting Compton. The figure shows an increase in fire cases in Compton over the past two years and a decrease in fire damage from the previous year.

It includes Compton, Inglewood, North Hollywood, West Hollywood and other parts of the South Bay.
This collection includes photos of fire damage in Compton, mostly related to fires in the late 1970s, early 1980s and early 1990s. Other notable topics include fires that destroyed homes, businesses, buildings and other properties in South Los Angeles and Compton.

As deputy chief of fire, he is responsible for leading the largest field service department of the fire department serving Compton and neighboring communities as well as the city of Los Angeles. Chief Richardson has more than 20 years of experience in the fire department as a firefighter, firefighter-paramedic and as deputy chief.
He graduated from Inglewood High School and was a member of the Crips gangs as well as the Los Angeles Police Department. He was sent to Salina Community College and California State University. Other areas in the city followed Garcetti's lead, including the San Fernando Valley, West Hollywood and South L.A., all of which have imposed similar curfews.
Black P. Inglewood is home to many of the city's most violent gangs, including the Crips and the Black Panther Party. South Los Angeles is mostly south of L.A. and is surrounded by the Hollywood Hills, San Fernando Valley, West Hollywood and South Pasadena.
Although Inglewood has made significant progress in improving quality of life over the past decade, it still tops the list of the most dangerous cities in SoCal for violent crime. California is more concerned about security than the rest of the country, and its safest city has the highest crime rate of any city in the U.S. and the second highest homicide rate, according to the FBI.
Inglewood has the second-highest violent crime rate of any ZIP code in SoCal and the third-highest homicide rate in the U.S., and property crime is 1.57%. The average number of violent crime victims in Hawthorne was 1135 per 100,000, property crimes were 1 in 46 and an Inglewoods police officer was killed in a shooting in his patrol car on March 15, 2014. Inglingwood is worse than its CA Stats because it is located in Southern California and occupies slightly less than half the average land area compared to other postcodes in the United States. The median number of violent crime victims in Ingleswood per million residents was 2,158, the minimum number to become a victim of violent crime in Los Angeles County, California, was 1 in 161, property crime was 1 in 57, and crime rates in Southern California ranged from 0.5% to 2.7%, according to the FBI.
