Fire tore through the roof of a commercial building in downtown Los Angeles amid high winds Wednesday morning and threatened nearby buildings.

Firefighters responded to 1401 E. 15th Street near Hooper Avenue about 2:45 a.m., according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Video from the scene showed flames shooting from the building and thick black smoke rising into the sky.

At 3:15 a.m., the fire was declared a major emergency and firefighters fought the fire from outside the 50-foot-by-100-foot, one-story building, Humphrey said.

It was unclear what type of business this is or the contents inside the building, he said.

At least 120 firefighters were assigned to the blaze.
