Broken Glass at 1127 Wilshire David Kean

Shattered glass outside the Samaritan Medical Tower, where an underground electrical vault explosion this morning caused a small fire.

An early-morning explosion in an underground electrical vault blew out ground floor windows and caused a small fire at the Samaritan Medical Tower, located in City West at Wilshire and Bixel.

Firefighters extinguished the flames in two-and-a-half hours and declared the building structurally unharmed, but an investigation continues this morning into what caused the blast just after 2am.
