LOS ANGELES — Two Los Angeles police officers were injured after a fire Monday morning ripped through a Panorama City apartment where firefighters found a body, an LAPD spokesperson said.

The police officers were treated at a local hospital for smoke inhalation and released shortly after, according to Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department. A 14-year-old boy was also injured in the fire, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott said.

No information has been released on the deceased individual, Scott said.

Firefighters responded to the blaze in the 8800 block of Tobias Avenue at 8:39 a.m. Firefighters saw smoke coming from the second floor of the 52-year-old apartment building. Thirty-nine firefighters were at the scene and controlled the flames in 14 minutes, Scott said.
