Cause of Boyle Heights warehouse fire under investigation

The cause of a non-injury fire at a one-story commercial building in Boyle Heights was under investigation today, a fire spokesman said.

The fire at 3500 E. Emery St. was reported at 11:40 p.m. Sunday, and 91 firefighters doused the blaze in 26 minutes, said Los Angeles City Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey.

Arriving firefighters found smoke showing from the building, and flames quickly began to shoot out of the roof, an RMG News camera crew reported.

The building appeared to be an upholstery shop warehouse, according to RMG.

Humphrey said firefighters were able to confine the flames to the structure and no one was hurt.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
