The fire caused extensive structural damage inside the warehouse, making it difficult to access areas of the fire with hoses. The Los Angeles Fire Department said in a statement that the blaze was elevated to “major emergency status” late Sunday evening.

“The building is fully implicated and the structural integrity of the building is beginning to deteriorate in at least one corner,” the fire department said in the statement.
