Los Angeles Fire Department is On Twitter

seal100.jpgA little over an hour ago there was an explosion in downtown L.A., with significant power disruption. Four buildings have been evacuated. No injuries reported. Spring street is shut down from 3rd to 5th St.

We know all this thanks to a post on MetBlogs LA, that asks the question “If you’re not following LAFD’s Twitter feed, why the heck not?!”

Good question, Metblogs. Thanks for the tip.
