REIT comments on Apartment Unit Fire



                     REIT comments on Apartment Unit Fire

PR Newswire

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 20, 2013

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Douglas Emmett, Inc.
(NYSE: DEI), a real estate investment trust (REIT), announced that there was a
fire in a single unit at its Barrington Plaza apartment building on October
18, 2013.  The Los Angeles Fire Department was able to quickly contain the
fire to a single unit and the corridor on the 11^th floor, although some
nearby units incurred smoke and water damage.  Unfortunately, several tenants
suffered from smoke inhalation.  The cause of the fire is under
investigation. 

The building had been inspected earlier this year by the Fire Department,
which confirmed that the building was in compliance with applicable law and
that the fire systems and alarms were functioning correctly.  Most tenants
were able to return to their units, and the Company expects that most of the
remaining units will be habitable within the next few days.  Douglas Emmett
has been working with tenants to minimize the disruption in the meantime.
