• Video: Fire at Chandler estate SAN MARINO – A fried chicken dinner that sparked a devastating blaze Monday cost the owner of a San Marino mansion nearly $5 million. And it came with fries. The man’s luxury home, at 1048 Oak Grove Place, was nearly destroyed by the three-alarm fire caused by his meal preparations. John Kabala, an Alhambra Fire Department division chief and arson/explosives expert, was part of a team that investigated the blaze and ruled it an accident. He said Tuesday the fire started as the owner was frying chicken and french fries in a big pot of oil. Kabala said the owner left to run an errand. But Jim Anderson, a San Marino fire division chief, said he went to work. In any case, he left the burner on and the oil overheated. Investigators found the burner still in the “on” position, Kabala said, and determined flames spread upward from the stove to the exhaust duct and to the attic. “There was a lot of grease residue in the duct,” Kabala said. “The fire spread down a hallway like a wave and into this huge living-room area.” The 9,893-square-foot home, on more than an acre of wooded land, was built in 1964 for Los Angeles Times publisher Otis Chandler and his wife, Oris. Times officials said the Chandler family had lived at the address since the 1940s. Otis Chandler died Feb. 27 at age 78. Anderson estimated the damage at more than $2 million and said the owner and insurance officials would meet today to decide the fate of the property. “It’s not safe to occupy,” he said. “If the owner had a fire alarm monitored by an alarm company, this would be a whole different story.” Officials declined to identify the owner, but said he recently purchased the property, stayed there on an irregular basis and was about to move in. Sales brochures called the residence “A House For a True Tycoon.” It featured post-and-beam construction, had eight bedrooms, nine baths, a gym, a four-car garage, an oversized swimming pool and a lighted tennis court. It was last offered for sale at $4.8 million. It took more than 50 firefighters from San Marino and nearby cities several hours to douse the flames. The fire was reported around 6 p.m. Monday. No one was injured by the fire and no other homes were damaged. email@example.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4475160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Seven-time European champions AC Milan is banned from competing in the 2019-20 season of the Europa League for breaching UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules. The UEFA will now end its proceedings against Milan for overspending. “AC Milan is excluded from UEFA club competitions of the sporting season 2019-2020,” the Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) said. Milan had finished fifth in Italy’s Serie A last season. Their ban means that sixth-placed Roma will be promoted to the group stage of Europa League while seventh-placed Torino make it to the qualifiers.Related News Chelsea agree to loan midfielder Bakayoko to AC Milan Five crazy Ronaldinho skills that you may not see ever again! ‘Coming back’ Zlatan Ibrahimovic hints at return to Spain Milan had previously successfully appealed against a two-year ban that was imposed by UEFA last summer for their financial dealings between 2015 and 2017. The Financial Fair Play rules state that any club making losses beyond permitted limits over a three year period faces sanctions which in some cases can amount to a ban. Their initial ban against Milan would have barred them from taking part in the 2018-19 season of the Europa League but they convinced the CAS that they would be able to improve their finances under new ownership.
