A building fire left a 51-year-old injured in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, March 22, 2023.
Reports indicated that the accident transpired around 8:30 p.m. at a structure in the 1700 block of N. Main Street.
According to authorities, smoke and flames could be seen coming from the roof of the building, which may be a movie studio.
Crews were seen working on the roof, attempting to expel the smoke and flames. Two additional task forces had been requested for assistance.
Firefighters got about halfway into the structure without finding the fire, adding that they were trying to assess the situation under zero visibility conditions.
Responders then rushed a 51-year-old man to a nearby hospital who was in critical condition. His current state and identity have yet to be released.
Vehicles encircling the structure slowed access to the back of the building. Crews could enter through that side, spot the flames, and extinguish the bulk of the fire, primarily on a mezzanine.
More than 100 firefighters worked to extinguish the fire by 9:05 p.m., and its cause has not yet been determined.
