An apartment fire occurred in the 2200 block of Gaviota Avenue in Signal Hill on June 1, resulting in one man going into cardiac arrest, according to a county fire official.

An apartment fire in Signal Hill on June 1 apparently resulted in an elderly occupant experiencing cardiac arrest, according to Los Angeles County Fire Department Inspector Joey Marron.

In an emailed response to the Signal Tribune this week, Marron said units were dispatched to the fire, which took place in the 2200 block of Gaviota Avenue, at 2:44am.

“Firefighters had heavy smoke and fire showing from a second-story apartment unit,” Marron said. “We had knock-down at 3:13am. During our initial search with the assistance of Long Beach Fire, we did unfortunately have one elderly victim in cardiac arrest. He was taken to Long Beach Memorial, where he was revived and admitted in critical condition.”

Marron said there were no other injuries and the cause is under investigation.
