Crews Retire Fire at Leisure World

60 firefighters control apartment blaze

Sixty firefighters worked Wednesday to contain a kitchen fire in a fourth-floor apartment at Leisure World Towers.

The fire started in a unit's kitchen about 12:40 p.m. and was extinguished within 20 minutes, Capt. Greg McKeown told the Orange County Register.

Six other units had to be evacuated and no injuries were reported.

The woman whose unit was damaged was expected to stay with a neighbor, McKeown said.
