Building Fire Closes Entrance To LSD

1016 Hollywood

It has not been easy going for Lake Shore Drive users the past couple days. Yesterday the Drive closes due to the crash and standoff at Fullerton that did not reopen until 4:30am this morning. Then again this morning at just before 8am (the peak of rush hour) the entrance to Lake Shore Drive at Hollywood is shut down due to a building fire. Hollywood Ave was also closed between Broadway and Sheridan. Snarled traffic was widespread.

The fire reported at 1016 W Hollywood, was supposedly contained to the third floor, but information has been hard to come by. The 4+1 building is located on the corner of Hollywood and Kenmore. Reports state that there were people trapped on the fifth floor, however, there has been no talk of any injuries or deaths since.
