A commercial building in Torrance used as an indoor playground for kids went up in a major fire Sunday, and part of its roof collapsed during the three-alarm blaze.

Two employees were setting up for business at Kids Concepts USA, 22844 Hawthorne Blvd., when the fire broke out at the large “indoor playpen for kids,” said Torrance Fire Department Capt. Robert Millea. They were able to escape unharmed.
