A massive fire broke out shortly after 9 p.m. Sunday at a building in the Woodland Hills neighborhood.

The fire caused severe structural damage inside the warehouse, making it difficult for hoses to reach the fire. The fire was upgraded to “major emergency status” late Sunday night, the Los Angeles Fire Department said in a statement.
“The building is fully involved and the structural integrity of the building is beginning to fail in at least one corner,” the fire department said in a statement.
