US (CA): Firefighters struggle with burning chili peppers

Efforts to mop up a massive building fire in downtown Los Angeles have been complicated due to crates of chili peppers that were burned during the blaze on Sunday.

Firefighters coughed and sneezed as they attempted to douse hot spots and investigate the cause of the fire.

"What's hampering us is that you can smell and taste the chili powder and that chili that is burning in the masks that they're using," Capt. Scott LaRue with the Los Angeles City Fire Department explained.

No one was injured during the blaze.
