Fire crews extinguished a greater alarm fire Saturday in an hour and 12 minutes that began as a rubbish fire and spread to a strip of commercial buildings in downtown Los Angeles.
Firefighters arrived at 3:28 a.m. to 784 S. Crocker St. north of the Fashion District where they encountered a heavily involved fire, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey.
Among the hazards they encountered while fighting the flames were stacked storage inside a textile business in the one -story row of businesses, Humphrey said.
It took 112 firefighters to knock down the blaze.
No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation, Humphrey said.
