Family left homeless by Boyle Heights apartment fire
One firefighter suffered minor facial injuries and another a foot injury.
The family that lived in the apartment unit “lost everything,” said David Ortiz of the Los Angeles city Fire Department.
The cause of the fire, which was controlled in 15 minutes, was determined to be accidental.
