The fire broke out at a one-story business in the 11600 block of Main Street (map) just after 7:30 a.m., Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department said.

The structure is located just north of the 105 Freeway and was believed to house a mattress business, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Aerial video from Sky 5 showed several cars parked in a fenced area adjacent to the business. One of the vehicles appeared to have caught fire.

More than 100 firefighters were called to assist with what Humphrey described as a “stubborn blaze.”

At least three ladder trucks were used by firefighters attacking the flames from above, video showed.

As of 8:30 a.m., firefighters appeared to have the upper hand on the blaze after dousing the majority of flames.

The fire was officially considered a “knockdown” after 78 minutes, according to Humphrey.

No injuries were reported in the blaze.

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