Firefighters extinguished a stubborn greater-alarm apartment fire Sunday in South Los Angeles that left one person slightly injured.
The blaze inside the 22,000-square-foot four-story apartment building at 1910 S. Los Angeles St. was reported at 2:37 p.m., Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Nicholas Prange said. The building had 31 units inside.
The fire burned on the first floor, inside the walls on the fourth floor and into the attic, Prange continued.
A 35-year-old man was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation and transported to a hospital in fair condition, Prange said.
The department dispatched 82 firefighters to the scene and finally extinguished the flames in about 75 minutes, Prange added.
LAFD’s Arson/Counter terrorism inspectors were sent to the scene, he said.
