    L.A. Auto Show Fire of 1929

    March 5, 1929: Fire destroys four large tents holding the Los Angeles Auto Show. This panorama, made from two separate prints, was published the next day in the Los Angeles Times.

    In a page one story, the Los Angeles Times reported:

    Fire starting from a smoldering cigarette broke out at the Los Angeles Auto Show at 4:10 p.m. yesterday, and a half hour later the $1,250,000 display at the corner of Washington and Hill streets, housed in four huge tents, was a mass of smoking embers, charred wood, blazing rubber and twister (sic) steel. The loss is covered by a blanket insurance police, officials of the show stated.

    The flames originated, according to investigators, in or near the display of the Monocoupe Company, in the northeast corner of Tent No. 2, just in rear of the offices of the show, and near the restrooms…..

    When the fire was discovered it was a small red trickle leaping up the hangings to the top of the tent. The flames soon burned a hole in the canvas and the wind whipped the blaze to a fury and it leaped from tent top to tent top.

    Firemen, stationed at the show, made a futile attempt to halt the blaze with the use of the extinguishers scattered about the four tents, but found themselves powerless in the first few moments.

    Approximately 2500 spectators were in the four tents when the call of fire was sounded, and there appeared to be no stampede to reach the exits….

    Light explosions, as gasoline tanks burst on account of the heat, and heavy tires ignited, adding a light hazard to the attempt of the firemen to move some of the cars from the fire.

    The Times reported that one electrician “suffered severe burns.” Two firemen with burns were taken to a hospital. Several other firemen were treated at the scene.

    On March 8, the Los Angeles Times reported an electrical wire short circuit was the cause of the fire.

    Just one day after the fire, the Los Angeles Motor Car Dealers’ Assn. reopened a smaller version of the auto show at the Shrine Auditorium.

    Loyd McCormick and what appears to be a Ford Model A. The license plate is a 1936 Texas Centennial.
