I just searched to see if there was any follow-up on this & didn’t find any, but read something else interesting. That building was supposed to be a polling place for a local election the week after, as it had been for some years. Election officials hustled & found another place, a nearby Lutheran church. I don’t see this as being related to the election, because a week before, there wouldn’t have been any people, materials, or activities related to the election in the building.

The fire was at 2:00 a.m. & a LAFD battalion chief happened to be driving down a nearby freeway & noticed it. What are the chances of someone (sober) just stumbling upon a fire at 2:00 a.m.? If he hadn't, it could have progressed much further before being discovered. One of the LAFD spokesmen said it “was not perhaps divine intervention, but we had help that can’t be explained.”
