It took 80 firefighters 37 minutes to locate and put out a smoky fire in a two-story Vermont Square building Saturday evening.

The fire was reported at 8:06 p.m. Saturday at 4161 S. Vermont Ave., said the Los Angeles Fire Department's Nicholas Prange.

The smoke was found on the first and second floor and spreading through the building that had commercial use on the first floor and residential use on the second, Prange said.

Once the flames were out, crews set up blowers to get the smoke out of the building, he said. No injuries have been reported. 

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
