Simply horrible.  Lots of radio talk that there could be many more situations like this popping up as facilities not maintained because workers furlowed due to COVID shutdowns.  Even illicit production activities arent monitored because it was too obvious to have people coming and going with empty streets.

11 firefighters injured, multiple buildings set on fire after explosion in downtown L.A.

Eleven firefighters were injured and multiple buildings were set ablaze after an explosion in downtown Los Angeles Saturday, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.

The blast was reported around 6:30 p.m. while firefighters were responding to a fire at a one-story structure at 327 E. Boyd St., according to LAFD.

The fire started at Smoke Tokes Warehouse Distributor, a business that appears to be a supplier for those that make butane honey oil, Scott said.

Video showed dark plumes of smoke billowing over the area and flames shooting up from at least one of the buildings.

“Significant explosion — very high, very wide, rumbling the entire area— and firefighters were coming out with obvious damage and burns,” Scott said.
