One hundred firefighters were needed to knock out a blaze in a 3-story commercial building in Playa Vista this morning, fire officials said.

From miles away, smoke could be seen billowing up from the fire that broke out at a promotional products supplier company at 11869 Teale St. Saturday morning, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The fire was first reported at 7:30 a.m., and firefighters arrived on scene to find that a blaze had broken out on the third floor, according to the Los Angeles Times. It took nearly two hours to knock down the blaze and it was out by 9:17 a.m., fire officials said. No one was in the building at the time, fortunately, and there were no injuries. Arson investigators were looking into the cause of the blaze and estimating how much damage there was.
