Fire at the Roosevelt

It doesn't look all too serious at this point, but lots of trucks have responded to a fire in Roosevelt Building at the corner of 7th and Flower. The building is currently undergoing residential conversion, so the flames are likely the result of work being done. You can see some smoke starting to rise, but right now it's pretty wispy.

As you can see, the ladder is up on the front of the building but the smoke seems to be rising from the rear. I may head down and see if I can grab some more pictures.

Update (10:53): They killed this one pretty quick. The trucks are packing up and the smoke seems mostly gone. I'm sure Brian will have more information on the LAFD blog sometime soon.
