Firefighters needed about an hour Friday morning to extinguish a fire inside a commercial building in downtown Los Angeles.
Crews responded to the 1300 block of South Los Angeles Street about 4:15 a.m. and discovered smoke and activated sprinklers inside the building, according to Nicholas Prange of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Firefighters on the roof then noticed flames coming through holes in the ceiling and crews inside the 50-foot-by-150-foot business encountered fire burning on multiple tiers inside the building, Prange said.
A total of 93 firefighters extinguished the blaze in 57 minutes, he said.
No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire was under investigation.
