According to LAFD spokesman Nicholas Prange the firefighters responding to the fire faced a hard situation as they could not enter the building because of the fire.

All were expected to survive, officials said.

LAFD Chief Ralph Terrazas said the incident had shaken many in his department.

According to CNN, a total of 11 firefighters were injured and four were taken to the Burn Intensive Care Center at Los Angeles County USC Medical Center.

Eleven firefighters were receiving treatment for burn injuries, Scott said. "We've got a lot of firefighters that are shaken up".

Cleveland said there are small fires all the time in the neighborhood, which borders skid row, but she had never seen anything like this before. "You can imagine the amount of emotional stress", he said. The hazmat team has responded to the scene. It was unclear whether that business and the one that burned Saturday were connected. "We had multiple explosions going off inside the fire while it was burning due to the butane containers releasing".
