Firefighters Respond to Raging Structure Fire in North Hollywood

Firefighters extinguished a raging fire that was burning at a commercial building in North Hollywood Friday night, authorities said.

The “greater alarm” fire broke out in the 7400 block of North Fulton Avenue (map) shortly before 7:40 p.m., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Pockets of intense flames were shooting through the rooftop of the building roughly 30 minutes after the blaze started, aerial video showed. Large plumes of thick smoke were also rising from the building.

A handful of firefighters stationed on the roof and were dousing the flames with the water, the video showed.

It took more than 100 firefighters less than an hour to knock down the flames, according to LAFD spokeswoman Katherine Main.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the blaze was under investigation.
