Huge L.A. fire shuts down parts of 2 freeways

The fire in downtown Los Angeles could be seen for miles early Monday.

A massive fire at a Los Angeles construction site the size of a city block shut down sections of two major freeways for hours early Monday.

Hundreds of firefighters battled the blaze, which broke out about 1:10 a.m. and could be seen for miles.

“This is a historic fire, what we as firefighters would call a career fire. It’s huge,” Fire Department spokesman David Ortiz told NBC News. “I really can’t remember a building fire this big and I have been with the department for 13 years.”
