VIDEO: It took firefighters several hours Wednesday night to extinguish a greater-alarm blaze which ripped through a vacant restaurant in Sun Valley. The fire was reported at a 5,736 square-foot former dine-in restaurant in the 8400 block of Sunland Boulevard at 8:41 p.m., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. Within about 20 minutes, the 83 firefighters assigned to the greater-alarm fire had taken a defensive position as flames overtook the building. Shortly before 10 p.m., the blaze was upgraded to a major emergency fire with 111 LAFD personnel assigned. Fire crews were said to be returning to interior operations to get to the seat of the flames. It took a little under four hours for crews to finally bring the fire under control. No one was hurt.
