Please be advised that regular operating conditions at many Los Angeles and Long Beach terminals has been interrupted after a fire broke out at the Pasha Warehouse facility in Wilmington, CA early yesterday evening. Dense smoke has created an unsafe operating environment and forced the temporary closure of the terminals. All container terminals at the Port of Los Angeles have been closed for precautionary reasons over concerns about air quality from a stubborn fire that is sending up a huge plume of smoke.
Port spokesman Philip Stansfield said the eight terminals will likely remain closed until the night shift begins about 5 p.m. Tuesday. The terminals closures are causing delays to the cargo moving through the area.
RCL Agencies will provide further updates once available.
