1 dead in Hollywood recording studio fire that injured 2, including Ozzy Osbourne’s daughter


One person was killed and two others were injured when a fire ripped through a building in Hollywood on Thursday night.

The fire was first reported around 6:35 p.m. at an industrial building in the 6600 block of W. Lexington Avenue.

Firefighters arrived on the scene and found smoke billowing from a two-story concrete building. According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, 78 firefighters battled the blaze and were able to extinguish the flames in about 51 minutes.

When firefighters searched the structure, they found a dead person inside the building. The identity of this person has not yet been revealed.

Two people at the scene complained of respiratory problems related to smoke exposure, firefighters said, but were treated and released at the scene.

Sharon Osbourne, TV personality and wife of legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne, posted about the fire on her Instagram page. In his post, Osbourne said the couple’s daughter, Aimee Osbourne, was in the building at the time and working in a recording studio.

Osbourne’s daughter was one of two who made it out alive, the talk show host and reality TV star said.

“It is truly heartbreaking that someone lost their life today in this fire and we send our prayers to this person and their family,” Sharon Osbourne said on Instagram. “What happened today was beyond horrible.”

Osbourne described the building as a “creative hub for music in Hollywood” and while offering condolences for the life lost and musical equipment destroyed in the fire, she criticized what she believed to be a lack of security fire and building regulations.

“I really hope that in the future, buildings like this will be better regulated when it comes to fire safety,” Osbourne’s post read. Osbourne said the space “should have been regulated for the fire code.”

The cause of the fire is under investigation. It is not known at this time whether the building was in fact up to code or not.
