A fire broke out in the city of Los Angeles Saturday afternoon, which spread to various buildings and injured several firefighters.

According to the LAFD, the eruption occurred in 327 BC. Happened in Boyd Street. It sent flames and columns of black smoke into the air that could be seen from miles away.

At 7:45 am, several firefighters appeared on the roof of the adjacent building pouring water over the burning structure in the video of the scene and it appeared that most of the fire was extinguished. Smoke was still coming out of a building. The windows of many businesses were blackened, and an LAFD fire truck was burned and covered in debris, apparently from an explosion.

The number of victims was not clear, but LAFD said on Twitter that more than 10 firefighters were "down" after the explosion. Officials did not provide details about his terms.

LAFD said firefighters had received reports of a single-storey commercial building with smoke. The building is south of Little Tokyo, formerly in a shopping business district in the east of the city, near the corner of Third and San Pedson Street. The area is known for a variety of smoke shops.

Officials said 230 firefighters are on the scene and roads around the neighborhood have been blocked.

"Firefighters have gone into a defensive posture for the fire attack, and a medical arm has been formed to treat and transport injured firefighters," the LAFD said.

Mayor Eric Garcetti said on Twitter that "my thoughts go out to our brave LAFD firefighters" and that he "is following this situation closely."
