LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A firefighter battling a blaze at a two-story church in Los Angeles on Tuesday was rescued by emergency crews from the burning building.
Authorities responded to the church at 1001 E. 27th Street at about 9:30 a.m. The attic was already well involved in flames when firefighters arrived, and part of the roof collapsed.
The injured firefighter was pulled from the building and rushed to a local hospital in unknown condition.
The church was built in 1895 and is located in a historic district south of downtown. It was the center of the prohibition movement in L.A. in the early 1900s.
