Man Arrested After 5 Bodies Found in Burned Building


A man was under arrest after five bodies were found in a vacant Westlake District building that was destroyed in a fire last night.

A man detained as a person of interest in the fire was booked, possibly on a murder allegation, a Los Angeles Police Department official told L.A. Weekly this afternoon.

Details of the arrest would be revealed during a 5 p.m. press conference at the site of the fire, a two-story structure that appeared to have been used as a Korean-American medical building, the official said.
