Port of Los Angeles Resumes Operations

Following a toxic fire of the Pasha terminal at Berth 177 in the Port of Los Angeles, which spurred air quality concerns from creosote covered wood, officials announced remaining terminals have resumed operations 6 p.m. Tuesday evening.  Nearby Yusen Terminals International announced they would reopen 8 a.m. Wednesday morning.

The fire originally broke out at 6:40 p.m. Monday evening at the 800 block of South Fries Avenue located in the Port of Los Angeles. The cause of the fire has been identified as a welding accident that ignited the 800-foot-long wharf sitting beneath a cargo warehouse.
