An arson investigation is underway after the second fire this week left a church destroyed in the Chesterfield Square neighborhood of Los Angeles Thursday. Firefighters were called to the Holy Apostolic Pentecostal church in the 2100 block of West Slauson Avenue when the most recent blaze was reported just after 3:15 a.m. Thursday. Arriving crewmembers were forced into a defensive mode when they found heavy fire showing from the one-story commercial building. Video from the scene shortly after 4 a.m. showed firefighters trying to battle the flames from on top of the roof. The fire started in an adjacent vacant unit that shares a wall with the church. The adjacent unit contained a lot of furniture that caught fire before the flames spread and engulfed the church.
