Firefighters in rescue helicopters hoisted more than a dozen people to safety Wednesday from a rooftop of a West Los Angeles high-rise building on fire.
Thick smoke billowed from the seventh floor, which is the sixth
"residential" floor above the building's lobby.
Eight people were injured, including a 3-month-old child. One person suffered critical injuries, according to the fire department. Most of the injuries involved smoke inhalation.
