A person was found dead after firefighters extinguished a greater alarm fire in an industrial building in Hollywood Thursday.

Los Angeles Fire Department firefighters were called just after 5:40 p.m. to 6600 Lexington Ave., between Highland Avenue and Vine Street, on reports of a fire at a two-story concrete building, according to the department’s Nicholas Prange.

Two people were evaluated at the scene for smoke inhalation, but declined to be taken to a hospital, Prange said.

The fire was extinguished in 51 minutes by 78 firefighters, Prange said.

The body was found as firefighters searched the structure, Prange said.

The name of the person found dead and exact manner of death were not immediately known.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
