A fire at an industrial building in North Hollywood sent clouds of smoke into a nearby residential neighborhood Monday night.
Los Angeles Fire Department firefighters responded to flames towering over the building in the 11000 block of Weddington Street around 11:15 p.m.
According to LAFD, the building was inaccessible for a while because of a bolted chain link fence and heavy mteal doors. Firefighters used rotary saws to gain entry and a hose line to extinguish the flames.
