Firefighters extinguished a greater alarm fire at a smoke-filled, two-story commercial building in downtown Los Angeles in 34 minutes Monday evening.

The 49 firefighters responded at 6:59 p.m. to 268 S. Los Angeles St., just west of Third Street, where they encountered dense storage conditions, security obstacles on the second floor and limited visibility due to heavy smoke before they put out the fire, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Nicholas Prange.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
