Video from the scene showed the fire burning in the 100 block of South Oxford Avenue just before 1 a.m.

Fire and smoke could be seen billowing from at least one of the units in the apartment building.

Rescuers found a bulldog inside the building and brought it outside.

Video showed firefighters giving the dog oxygen and water as they knelt by its side.

The dog, which was the only rescue in the incident, was very friendly and doing well, according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

A woman in a wheelchair also needed assistance at one point but was not in the fire, Humphrey said.

There was no word on what may have caused the blaze.

The damage to the building was estimated to be about $12,000, Humphrey said.
