HIGHLAND PARK — One person was injured after fire broke out in a row of storefronts in the 5100 block of York Boulevard late this afternoon.
It took firefighters about half an hour to knock down the blaze that began at about 4:30 p.m, according to the L.A. Fire Department. The fire spread to three storefronts, including a Metro PCS store before it was extinguished. TV news footage and videos posted on Twitter showed the thick smoke and fire pouring from the roof of the building.
One person was transported to a hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.
