UPDATE: Fire Damages Encino Commercial Building

An overloaded electrical source caused a fire that resulted in an estimated $100,000 in damage to three businesses in Encino Tuesday, authorities said.

The fire, which was reported at 8:28 a.m. in the 5100 block of Zelzah Avenue, was extinguished in 18 minutes, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The non-injury blaze was sparked by an overloaded electrical source in a back room of Lucky Coin Laundry at 5124 Zelzah Ave., where the bulk of the damage occurred, said LAFD spokesman Erik Scott.

The flames ran through the common attic of the building, resulting in "moderate" smoke damage to the neighboring Super Cleaners and "mild" smoke damage to a 7-Eleven store, Scott said.
