LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fire officials say two people rescued from a blaze at a Los Angeles strip mall have died at a hospital.
City fire spokeswoman Margaret Stewart says a man and a woman were pulled from the burning one-story building Monday morning.
The victims are estimated to be in their 40s.
Stewart says when crews arrived around 5:30 a.m. at least one business was engulfed in flames.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
The strip mall on a commercial block about 5 miles south of downtown Los Angeles holds a laundromat, doughnut store, pizza shop and other businesses.
