Eleven firefighters injured by explosion in Los Angeles

Firefighters were called to a fire in a one-story commercial building in the Little Tokyo neighborhood when there was a major explosion.

At least eleven firefighters were injured on Saturday in an explosion during a fire in a Los Angeles shopping center, local officials said. Los Angeles fire captain Erik Scott told reporters that the injured firefighters had been burned but the severity of their injuries was unknown.

Firefighters were called for a fire in a one-story commercial building in the Little Tokyo district at 6.30 p.m. (3.30 a.m. in France) when “there was a major explosion that called for help from several potentially injured firefighters “added Erik Scott.

About 230 firefighters continued to fight the flames that spread to several buildings. The one where the fire broke out housed a business selling tobacco and vaping products. The explosion was such that several store fronts in the area were blackened. Thick smoke from the fire was visible for miles around.
