1 rescued, 1 injured as top floors of building burn in LA

LOS ANGELES (KTVU-AP) -- Fire engulfed the top of a building near downtown Los Angeles Tuesday evening as firefighters rescued one person from upper floors by ladder and one person was injured.

City fire Capt. Daniel Curry says fire companies responded to the blaze in the Westlake District at about 7:45 p.m. Tuesday.

Curry says many different businesses occupy the six-story building, and it's not clear which ones were open or occupied.

Fire officials say one person was rescued by ladder and one person was being treated for injuries that aren't life-threatening, but it wasn't clear if it was the same person.

About 170 firefighters extinguished the major-emergency blaze about an hour and 20 minutes after it broke out.

Firefighters searched the building and found no one else inside.
