COMPTON (CNS) - Fire tore through an abandoned commercial building in Compton today, but there were no immediate reports of any injuries.
The fire was reported at 2:18 p.m. in the 500 block of East Compton Boulevard, a Compton fire department dispatcher said. The building was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, and crews quickly went into a defensive mode, pulling crews away from the building and pouring water onto the blaze from the outside. About three dozen firefighters were on the scene, working to ensure the flames did not spread to any adjacent structures.
By late afternoon, the fire was continuing to burn.
