VIDEO: A South Los Angeles family was left heartbroken after a fire that began with a pursuit crash quickly spread to their apartment and destroyed everything inside. The pursuit driver crashed into the apartment early Saturday. Kevin Tinoco, his father, two sisters, brother-in-law, niece and nephew were inside the home when they heard the jarring sound of a car colliding with the building. "All of a sudden, you hear a big thud, kind of like a missile just hit something, like 'boom,'" Tinoco said. Security camera video from a nearby business captured the car crashing into the living room of the first-floor apartment. People inside the home ran outside and saw the driver and passengers still in the car. They sensed a bad situation was about to get worse.
