Flames damaged a first-floor unit of a six-story commercial building in downtown Los Angeles but were out in about 30 minutes due to sprinklers and firefighters.

The fire was reported at 4:17 p.m. at 1240 S. Main St., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Brian Humphrey.

It took 32 minutes for 59 firefighters to work through “dense storage and smoke” to put out flames held by sprinklers, Humphrey said.

No injuries were reported, he said. The cause of the fire was under investigation and the name of the business was not available.
