Authorities are investigating the cause of a fire in a residential building several blocks west of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ West Los Angeles Medical Center.
The fire, which started at about 11:45 am Friday, was isolated to the 11th floor of 11700 block of Wilshire Boulevard in West Los Angeles.
KTLA reports five residents, including a child, and three firefighters were treated for injuries; the child was in critical condition while the three firefighters were taken to Grossman Burn Center — two with leg burns and one with an ear burn.
According KTLA, the blaze was kept to a two-bedroom unit and knocked down in 71 minutes, with 214 firefighters responding.
NBC reports the building was completed in 1961 and was not equipped with a sprinkler system.
Wilshire Boulevard was shut down and alternates like San Vicente and Santa Monica Boulevard were filled with heavy traffic.
