PANORAMA CITY, Calif. - A major emergency fire damaged a commercial building in Panorama City Friday, but no one was hurt.
At least 105 firefighters battled the blaze at the one-story structure 14621 W. Titus St. It was reported at 12:09 a.m., and its progress had been stopped by around 2:20 a.m., said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Nicholas Prange.
Firefighters continued to search for pockets of fire and hot spots within the debris, Prange said.
"While no official 'knockdown' has been declared by the incident commander due to inaccessible pockets of fire within the debris, firefighters are commencing overhaul operations and will eventually leave a fire company on ‘fire watch’ through the morning,'' Prange said in a statement.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
