PLAYA VISTA (CBSLA.com) — Authorities on Saturday morning reported that about 100 firefighters knocked down a stubborn three-story structure fire at an unoccupied building near Playa Vista.

Fire crews responded to the blaze, at 11869 Teale St., just west of the 405 Freeway near Playa Vista, at about 7:30 a.m.

The fire sent a large black cloud of smoke billowing into the sky that could be seen from as far away as Silver Lake.

The building housed a commercial printing company called, “Innovation Line”.

No injuries were reported, and it took firefighters over two hours to put out the difficult fire.

“They mounted a very aggressive attack in the interior of the building for about 25 minutes, before they were overwhelmed by the fire conditions,” said LAFD Deputy Chief Joseph Castro.

“The fire was in the 3rd floor and in the attic, and eventually drove them out,” Castro added.

Arson investigators were on the scene but the cause of the fire is still unknown.
