Man found dead in Lennox fire

A 50-year-old man was found dead Tuesday after a fire in a commercial building in Lennox, authorities said.

The fire was reported at 11:35 a.m. in a commercial building at 10914 S. La Cienega Blvd. When firefighters arrived, they found the 50-feet-by-100-feet building engulfed in flames and smoke, said L.A. County Fire Inspector Frederic Stowers.

About 50 firefighters extinguished the blaze in 20 minutes. They found the man’s body during a second search of the building. Another man was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Sheriff’s Department arson investigators were trying to determine the cause of the fire. The man’s cause of death had not been determined.

The fatality comes a day after two people were killed in a fire in a Boyle Heights auto repair shop
