Firefighters Extinguish “Stubborn” Structure Blaze in Hollywood

It took more than 100 firefighters just over two hours to extinguish a "major emergency" commercial structure fire at the Highland Plating Company in Hollywood Sunday morning.

Heavy smoke could be seen coming from a one-story commercial building located in the 1000 block of North Orange Drive, according to an alert from the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Firefighters reported that part of the roof had collapsed and that chrome plating of the structure was causing flare-ups.

No injuries were reported in the fire and no evacuations were in place. Firefighters were able to protect offices next door, but were having more diffuclty containing the "stubborn" fire, according to Katherine Main of LAFD.

 The fire was knocked down shortly after 11 a.m.

One firefighter was injured in the blaze and taken to an area hospital in good condition.
