In the early morning on Sunday, Dec. 3, two adults were found dead after a roaring fire fueled by ammunition burned three structures at 13755 Glenoaks Blvd. in Sylmar.
The property stands out amongst the surrounding homes with neatly trimmed yards and holiday decorations. The roughly two-acre lot stretches between Glenoaks Boulevard and De Garmo Avenue. It’s secluded behind large black metal gates and overgrown plants, preventing any visibility of the home from the street. A large security camera rests above the main entrance. Police tape is still up and visible bullet holes have pierced through the main iron gate located on Glenoaks.

We are not suggesting or promoting the discussion to go towards one direction or the other. We simply promote all stakeholders to be part of the discussion and let their voices be heard.
