Fire breaks out at church near MacArthur Park

Los Angeles firefighters worked to extinguish a blaze that broke out at a one-story vacant church in the 700 block of S. Park View Street near MacArthur Park Tuesday evening.

Crews were dispatched to the scene shortly after 5 p.m. Aerial footage from SkyFOX showed moderate smoking coming out of a hole in the rooftop that was created by firefighters for ventilation.

It took fire crews approximately 18 minutes to put out the fire, according to Nicholas Prange of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Prange said firefighters began an aggressive interior fire attack, "without relief from vertical ventilation in this case (concrete roof)."

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
