Firefighters on scene as smoke pours from Reseda grocery store

Approximate location of fire shown in black.

Los Angeles Fire Department crews were on the scene early Monday as smoke billowed from a grocery store in a Reseda strip mall.

TV images just after 5 a.m. showed thick smoke rising from the roof of the DVIN Market Deli Grocery at the intersection of Sherman Way and Yarmouth Avenue. The supermarket is a one-story building in a mixed-use development.

The smoke was coming from a heater vent in the attic of the supermarket, KTLA reported.

Sherman Way was barricaded for one block to the east and to the west to accommodate fire trucks and personnel.

The LAFD could not be immediately reached for comment.
