    One person was injured in an early morning fire in Glendale when he jumped from the second floor to escape the flames, a witness said.

    The three-alarm fire swept through a two-story structure in a strip mall at 233 N. Brand Avenue at 12:15 a.m., a Glendale fire dispatcher said.

    One person was injured after he jumped from the second floor, said a witness at the scene.

    Several gas lines fed fuel to the fire making it more difficult to put out, authorities said.

    Firefighters put out the blaze at 2:21 a.m., officials said.

    The cause of the fire is under investigation.

    The injured man was taken to a hospital.
