Hand sanitizer-filled pallets catch on fire in DTLA

Crews have contained a fire sparked by hand sanitizer at a downtown Los Angeles building Monday.

The fire was reported just after 12:30 p.m. at the building located at 1130 E. 18th Street. 

"The product is ethanol hand sanitizer which is clean burning (no smoke). Class B foam manages the run off while sand is in place downstream to contain the water. Safest operation is to allow it to burn off," the LAFD said.

No injuries have been reported. 

Authorities warned drivers to avoid the area as it was an ongoing incident.
