Fire Burning in Koreatown Commercial Buildings

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Firefighters today were working to fully extinguish a stubborn fire that was burning in the crawl space of two commercial buildings in Koreatown.

The fire was reported about 5:10 a.m. at a two-story strip mall in the 900 block of South Western Avenue, according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

“Incident command reports it will be a delayed 'knockdown' call because of the difficult to access areas the fire is infiltrating,'' Stewart said in a statement.

“There are two separate, multi-unit commercial buildings with a fire in a wall, extending into the floor,'' Stewart said. “It is difficult to reach and firefighters are working to open up sections of wall in the tight area.''

No injuries were reported.
