LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Fire Department says two people were killed and at least three others were hurt when flames ripped through a music recording studio.
Fire spokeswoman Amy Bastman says crews found heavy smoke when they responded shortly before 7 a.m. Saturday in the Universal City area north of downtown.
Bastman says two victims were dead on arrival at a hospital and two others are in grave condition. She says one other person is in fair condition.
Firefighters had the flames knocked down in less than a half-hour.
Bastman says the fire was in a studio about 50 feet (15 meters) by 75 feet (23 meters).
The cause is under investigation.
