The Los Angeles County Fire Department got the call around 10:40 a.m.

A fire broke out at a three-story commercial building Wednesday in Huntington Park, sending a heavy plume of smoke into the air that was visible across the city.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department got the call around 10:40 a.m. and was on the scene 10 minutes later, spokesman Marvin Lin said.

Part of the roof of the three-story building in the 2000 block of Belgrave Avenue collapsed, but no injuries were reported.
