Mary has lived in the Hancock Park area for over 20 years - including homes in Larchmont Village and Windsor Square. Mary has lived in some great places in her life - but none compare to the convenience and majesty of our neighborhood. For Mary, the neighborhood has been a wonderful home to her large, extended family...at one time she had family members living on seven different Hancock Park area blocks!

A spectacular shot at that… Captures the tragedy of it all pretty vividly.
Any idea how the fire was started? I drove by when it was up in flames, quite a scary scene… glad the LAFD was able to get it out before it spread!
