An apartment building in Koreatown became engulfed in flames Monday morning.

The fire was reported shortly before 5 a.m. at a two-story building near the intersection of South Manhattan Place and West 8th Street, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesperson Nicholas Prange stated in a news alert.

Responding firefighters could be seen cutting through a fence to gain access to the property.

Aerial video from Sky5 showed flames burning through the roof of the multi-unit structure as of 5 a.m.

Firefighters went into a defensive mode to knock back the bulk of the flames, Prange stated.

Crews eventually entered the structure to finish extinguishing the blaze.

It took 32 firefighters about 48 minutes to douse the fire.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
