Four people were injured Wednesday evening in a fire at a commercial structure in the Florence neighborhood of Los Angeles, authorities said.
More than 100 firefighters with the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene at about 6 p.m. They extinguished the fire in 31 minutes and rescued four people.
A man, a woman, a toddler and an older child were transported to a hospital in fair condition with smoke inhalation injuries. It's not known why they were in the building, but authorities believe they are a family, said LAFD spokesman Brian Humphrey. The cause of the fire is being investigated.
The 6,400-square-foot structure, built in 1922, was structurally compromised, Humphrey said. The dollar value of the damage was unavailable. The fire did not spread to any other structures.
