LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles fire officials say a person has been found dead in a home that burned near Exposition Park.

Fire spokesman Brian Humphrey says a firefighter suffered a burn to a leg while fighting the blaze Tuesday morning.

It took more than 50 firefighters about a half-hour to knock down the flames. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Officials say there were packrat-like conditions in the home.

The injured firefighter is in fair condition.
