Arrest Made in Music Studio Fire That Killed 2 in Studio City

Police Sunday announced the arrest of a man in connection to a Studio City fire that left two people dead and two others critically injured.

Eferem Demery, 28, was arrested on suspicion of murder after the deadly fire ripped through the Top Notch Recordings music studio Saturday morning, the Los Angeles Police Department announced Sunday.

The fire was reported around 6:54 a.m. Saturday at 3779 N. Cahuenga Blvd, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Amy Bastman. The two people who died in the fire were declared dead at the scene, while two other victims were transported to a hospital.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office identified one of the victims killed in the blaze as 28-year-old Devaughn Kemar Carter. The second victim — who has not yet been identified by the coroner’s office — was identified by family as 30-year-old Michael Pollard.

One other person was injured, but was listed in fair condition, Bastman said.

Pollard leaves behind a 1-year-old daughter. 

His sister Lachelle Pollard told NBC4 she knew both men who died in the fire and described her older brother Michael as a loving father. 

She said that Michael and Carter were good friends who shared a passion for music. 

At least 30 firefighters and seven Los Angeles Fire Department engines responded to the blaze, finding heavy smoke when they arrived at the scene. LAFD Assistant Chief Patrick Butler said the victims’ bodies were found “in various places of the building.”
