Hollywood Museum

On Tuesday, July 1, 1930, Engine Co. No. 27, Hose Co. No. 2, Truck Co. No. 9, Rescue Co. No. 2, and Salvage Co. No. 4 moved into the city’s newest Fire Station. Although the building was not entirely completed at the time of occupancy, it still represented a remarkable feat: Fire Station 27 was the largest fire station west of the Mississippi. The first emergency response from Fire Station 27 came on the fist day of occupancy at 3:14 p.m. to a two-story brick hotel at 6724 Hollywood Blvd. The occupants of apartment 149 extinguished a fire caused by a cigarette with buckets of water. 
For decades, Fire Station 27 served Hollywood, the motion picture studios, the stars who lived in the hills and along Sunset Boulevard, and during major emergencies, the entire city at large. The Northridge earthquake nearly brought an end to the magnificent old building, but it was saved from the wrecking ball and rebuilt. For the past decade, a new Fire Station 27 sits next door and continues the tradition established by the ornate and long-lived building.
