Firefighters responded to reports of a fire early on Saturday morning at Victory Outreach Pomona, located at 177 W. Monterey Ave., approximately a mile south of the Santa Monica (10) Freeway. A dispatcher verified that the Los Angeles County Fire Department had successfully put out the fire at 6:13 a.m. after receiving the report at 2:27 a.m.

Victory Outreach Pomona used Facebook to respond to the issue and notify both the public and its church of the regrettable occurrence. Following the announcement that the church structure had completely collapsed, the morning’s planned service and the ‘Believe’ play and gift giveaway were canceled until further notice. In its statement, the church asked for prayers for all of its members, including their leaders.

Victory Outreach Pomona was comforted by the community’s prompt and sympathetic response, despite the devastating loss. Victory Outreach Senior Pastor Robert Garcia thanked everyone for their tremendous support and said, “We’re going to be stronger when we return. I am finding solace in the knowledge that I am not alone in our wonderful community.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department’s prompt action was vital in averting more damage to the church and guaranteeing the community’s safety. Since the firemen brought the situation under control in a few hours, they should be commended for their effectiveness.
