Firefighters needed about 90 minutes Tuesday morning to extinguish a “stubborn” fire in a two-story commercial building in Mid-City.
Crews responded about 1:50 a.m. to 5220 Washington Blvd., just west of Redondo Boulevard, and found smoke coming from the building. Upon entry, they encountered fire on both floors, according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Medical and dental offices, as well as a methadone clinic, were located inside the building, NBC4 reported.
A total of 68 firefighters battled the “stubborn blaze” and a knockdown was declared around 3:15 a.m., Stewart said.
No injuries were reported and the LAFD Arson section was called to the scene to investigate the cause of the fire.
