Firefighters Sunday were trying to figure out why a greater-alarm fire tore through a building at a large apartment complex in Woodland Hills overnight.

One person was examined for a possible smoke inhalation injury and then released at the scene of the fire, which was reported just after 8 p.m. Saturday at the Warner Villa Apartments complex in the 5800 block of North Topanga Canyon Boulevard, Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department said.

Ninety firefighters responded and knocked down the blaze in 40 minutes, he said.

Reports from the scene showed a building with flames roaring through its roof.

Humphrey said firefighters contained the blaze to the first-floor unit of origin.

A stretch of Topanga Canyon Boulevard was closed between Oxnard Street and the Ventura (101) Freeway as firefighters battled the blaze. There was no immediate word of what may have caused the fire.
