A major emergency fire Monday evening caused the roof of a large commercial building in North Hollywood to collapse and firefighters worked to protect a nearby structure and vehicles.

Firefighters were called to an approximately 60-foot-by-100-foot, single-story building at 5400 Tujunga Ave., near Chandler Boulevard, just after 9 p.m., where a garbage fire had extended to the structure, according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The building was well-involved in fire and flames spread to a second building, Stewart said, adding a third commercial building under construction was exposed to the fire and firefighters were working to protect it and some nearby work vehicles.

A total of 109 firefighters were assigned to the fire.

There are downed power lines in the area and Los Angeles Department of Water & Power is working to de-energize the lines, Stewart said.

No injuries have been reported.
