Two people, including one firefighter, were hurt Friday in a general alarm fire that burned at least two garages and two nearby homes in Koreatown, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
The blaze, which burned a number of buildings at different addresses, began at 926 S. Harvard Blvd. at about 3:10 p.m., fire department spokesman Nicholas Prange said.
One firefighter was hurt during a partial collapse of a roof of one of the burning buildings, Prange said. His condition was listed as fair after being taken to a hospital. A second man was also injured but refused hospital transport after being evaluated by paramedics.
The department sent 78 firefighters to the scene and extinguished the flames in about 54 minutes, Prange continued.
The cause of the fire remained under investigation.
