The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) on Wilshire has closed its doors and notification says it will remain closed until further notice. Apparently, the closure is due to a fire in the building last week. No one was hurt.
Linda Lucks, of Venice Community Housing, reported that there had been a fire in the basement causing an evacuation and that the building would be closed during an investigation. No one was reported injured.
Notification below from LAHSA gave info to get to website but Update could not get there.
Jed Pauker, a computer techie from the Venice Neighborhood Council, stated the relevant site could be reached here:
“It appears to be a login page for account-holders,” he wrote. A Microsoft web application called Silverlight may ask for permission to use space on the visitor’s computer. Update uses an Apple computer and site Silverlight available for download.
NOTE: All updated information will be on VeniceUpdate.com as new information becomes available.
