A fire broke out today at a two-story office building in Tarzana, and one person was injured, authorities said.

Sixty firefighters took 29 minutes to knock down the blaze in the 18500 block of Ventura Blvd., a Los Angeles Fire Department dispatcher said. Arson investigators were then sent to the scene.

One person was hospitalized, but it was not known if the victim was a civilian or a firefighter, the dispatcher said.

The fire was reported around 2:30 a.m., with flames showing through the roof. A damage estimate was being tallied.
