He said the fire appears to have started when something was being cooked. A fire broke out today in a four-story apartment building in the Little Armenia section of Los Angeles, displacing a family and leaving at least one person hospitalized with smoke inhalation, authorities said. The fire at 5426 Sierra Vista Avenue near Western Avenue broke out at 12:22 a.m., said a Los Angeles City Fire Department captain, adding that the blaze was knocked down at 12:46 a.m. and no firefighter was hurt. Another senior firefighter, a battalion chief, told an On Scene Video camera crew at the fire site that firefighters arrived to find a room in a first-floor unit ablaze and three people — two adults and a child — suffering from smoke inhalation. One person was taken to a hospital, he said. The fire was contained to that apartment, whose occupants were displaced, but firefighters used a ladder to rescue at least one person from the second story, the battalion chief said. last_img
