A man died Monday after an apartment complex burst into flames in Hancock Park, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.
As indicated by the department, fire teams were dispatched not long after 4 p.m. to a three-story apartment complex over a stopping zone in the 500 square of North Sycamore Avenue with light to direct smoke appearing.
It took firefighters 16 minutes to stifle the blazes in a unit on the highest level of the building. A man in his 50s had the option to securely empty from the building and was assessed by paramedics for a dubious physical issue/medical protest.
During the resulting search of the floor, firefighters found a man in his 60s and took him to paramedics at the base of the building who gave prompt progressed lifesaving care to serious smoke inward breath while hurrying to a trauma center.
The man was articulated dead at the hospital by trauma center staff.
The LAFD Arson and Counter-Terrorism Section is examining the fire.
