LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles City firefighters knocked down a blaze that erupted at a single-story home in the Koreatown area on Friday morning. 

The fire was reported on the 900 block of S. Kenmore Avenue, between San Marino Street and W. Olympic Boulevard, just before 10 a.m. 

Aerial views from SkyFOX showed heavy smoke and fire coming from the structure. 

A man at the home failed at an attempt to search for a dog inside the residence and was overcome by intense heat and smoke. He was treated at the scene for smoke exposure and minor thermal injury.

No other injuries were reported and it was unknown if the man accepted recommended transportation to a hospital. The cause of the fire was under investigation.

The fire comes as Southern California braces for a heat wave with above-average temperatures expected across the region. 

SUGGESTED: Triple-digit temperatures expected to hit SoCal this weekend
