It took firefighters less than 30 minutes Sunday evening to put out flames on the top floor of an unoccupied seven-story commercial building in downtown Los Angeles.

The fire was reported at 9:37 p.m. in a previously burned building at 1624 S. San Pedro St., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Nicholas Prange.

“Firefighters ascended the interior stairwells to locate a contents fire on the seventh floor,” Prange said. “Firefighters quickly developed `above-ground’ hose lines up to the top floor to extinguish the flames in less than 30 minutes, and then ventilated the structure to facilitate smoke removal.”

There were no reports of injuries, he said.
