A man and woman in “grave condition” were pulled from a burning Boyle Heights home this morning near Malabar Street Elementary school, reports the Los Angeles Fire Department. It took firefighters about 20 minutes to put out the blaze that had engulfed a one-story house in the 3100 block of Malabar Street, according to early information issued in an LAFD email alert. No further information was immediately available.
* Update: The injured victims were described as a 70-year-old woman and her 90-year-old husband, according to LAFD. Two men who had just dropped off their kids at Malabar kicked in the door of the house to help rescue the woman.
