Los Angeles firefighters were battling a large blaze at a commercial building in Boyle Heights on Tuesday evening.
The fire was reported at 5:16 p.m. at 3701 E. Union Pacific Ave., according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
The blaze was declared a "major emergency structure fire," with more than 140 firefighters assigned, she said.
The fire was burning in a largely industrial area about one block south of the 5 Freeway. The two-story commercial building houses a textile business, Stewart said.
Aerial video from Sky5 showed many fire engines responding, surrounding the large building. Smoke was pouring from the structure, which only initially showed a small amount of flames.
Crews were working to save the building amid an "aggressive offensive attack" at the second floor, Stewart said.
The fire was extinguished around 6 p.m. No injuries were reported.
