This afternoon Joz posted about a situation at Gower & Fountain where the streets were closed and police and fire department crews were on hand. She posted photos as well. Brian Humphrey of the LAFD posted a comment confirming that something was going on on the 1200 block of North Gower but that it was not a LAFD matter so he was unable to comment more about it. He was able to state that “the situation is static and not expected to escalate.” NBC 4 just posted more photos (this time from helichopters) and reports that there was an anonymous tip about “an explosive device or hazardous material at an apartment in Hollywood.” They also are saying that 75 people have been evacuated but there’s no reports if anything was found or not. More news on this soon, I’m sure.
UPDATE: Here’s the report.
