Blaze erupts in Dollar Tree store in North Hollywood with customers inside

A fire broke out Thursday night at a North Hollywood Dollar Tree store.

Crews responded to the blaze at the one-story building in the 6100 block of North Lankershim Boulevard at about 8:10 p.m. 

Cell phone video showed flames erupting in one of the aisles while customers were inside. 

“I pulled out people,” said Azubuike Young, a security guard working at the time. “A lady was in shock. She was one of the cashiers working here.” 

The flames also briefly threatened an adjacent restaurant, but did not spread to it.

It took 84 firefighters about 45 minutes to extinguish the blaze, the Los Angeles Fire Department reports.

There were no injuries. Footage from the scene showed significant damage to the interior of the store. 

“It’s a very dangerous job with homeless people all over the shopping center,” added Young. 

Investigators are looking into if the fire was the result of possible arson.
