The 10th floor of a 12-story building in the 400 block of South Fuller Avenue (map) was burning, according to an alert sent out by the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The blaze was knocked down by 100 firefighters in about 15 minutes and was confined to one room and a bathroom, according to the department. No injuries were reported.

The dense complex is in the Mid-Wilshire area of Los Angeles.

The fire had been reported at 4:44 p.m. Its cause was under investigation.

A resident of Park La Brea told KTLA that the fire occurred in the tower at 386 S. Burnside Ave., not the Fuller Avenue address given by the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The blaze came on a day when red flag warnings had been issued across Southern California, and many fire department had deployed extra firefighters in anticipation of Santa Ana wind-driven fires.
