Four firefighters required treatment from heat-related illness while battling a pesky fire at a church in San Fernando on Tuesday. The blaze was first reported just before 1 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church of San Fernando, located in the 1500 block of W. Glenoaks Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. It took around 100 firefighters more than two hours to fully extinguish the flames, which broke out in the attic of the one-story church. "During the incident, four firefighters sought medical help from on-scene paramedics due to heat-related illness. Three of them rested and recovered on scene and then continued working, and one was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation and care," said a statement from the department.
