A massive fire in downtown Los Angeles early today engulfed an apartment tower that was under construction, damaged two other buildings and left freeways and roads closed.

Firefighters used the 110 Freeway to set up equipment to fight the huge blaze.

Caltrans reopened the 101 Freeway and the southbound 110 at around 4:30 a.m., but the northbound 110 Freeway remained closed as of 7:30 a.m. Caltrans hoped to reopen the 110 north by 8 a.m.

  1. Amazing blaze! And just think … they had to use a demolition crew to tear it down after the fire! Too bad the engineers who designed the Twin Towers & Bldg 7 in NYC didn’t consult the LA engineers who designed this apartment building!
