Two firefighters were treated at a hospital Wednesday for injuries they suffered in a fire at a vacant house in Koreatown, authorities said.
One of the firefighters was hospitalized with second-degree burns over 10 per cent of his body and small burns on his hands, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said. The other firefighter suffered a sprained ankle, was treated at a hospital, and released.
The firefighters were hurt when a section of the ground floor of the vacant two-story residence collapsed, Humphrey said.
The fire was reported at 838 South Crenshaw Blvd. at 1:12 a.m., Humphrey said. It took 111 firefighters about 90 minutes to knock down.
