Firefighters Sunday knocked down a blaze at a two-story hotel under construction in Hollywood.

The 50 firefighters dispatched at 8:40 a.m. to 7023 W. Sunset Blvd. had the fire out within 25 minutes of their arrival, said Nicholas Prange of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

“Firefighters coordinated their efforts between rooftop ventilation, interior fire attack and patient search,” Prange said. “Firefighters found one individual inside, who is being evaluated by paramedics on scene.”

The cause of the fire is under investigation, he said.
