Engine Company No. 28 is a former Los Angeles Fire Department fire station on Figueroa Street in Downtown Los Angeles. Built in 1912 at a cost of US$50,000, the structure served as an operating fire station until it was closed in 1967. One of the first reinforced concrete fire stations in the city, it is a Class A fire-proof structure built of brick, hollow tile and concrete.[2] In 1979, the building was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

In the late 1980s, it was renovated as a restaurant operating under the name "Engine Company No. 28.", serving food based on recipes from American fire houses. The building was featured as an operating fire station in Los Angeles in the 2011 video game L.A. Noire, and currently houses the law offices of celebrity attorneys Mark Geragos and Brian Kabateck.
