Man slightly injured in Westside gas explosion
The explosion inside a two-story building in the 1500 block of South Granville Avenue occurred shortly after 10 p.m. Monday, said Brian Humphrey, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department.
A man living in the 18-unit building sustained a minor injury and sought his own medical treatment, Humphrey said.
Officials with the Department of Building and Safety were sent to inspect the building and determine whether it is structurally sound, he said.
The explosion took place in the kitchen area of an apartment, Humphrey said.
