Five Years Since Huge Fire Destroyed 3949 Lindell Apartments

July 17, 2017 Featured, History/Preservation No Comments

It was five years ago today that a fire destroyed the 3949 Lindell apartments. They’d been recently completed and occupied for only a few years.

Scene on July 19, 2012 passing by on the #10 MetroBus

Going from memory, the building had sprinklers buy the fire started in an attic space. The remains were so badly damaged it all had to be razed, except for the parking garage.

This was the 2nd fire to destroy 3949 Lindell.

The building was well underway on June 3, 2007
All wood framing was destroyed by arson on June 13, 2007

It was rebuilt.

Just over a year later the rebuild is nearly complete.

Hopefully it’ll remain standing for many decades.
