A county firefighter injured his back Sunday when he fell through the floor of a burning two-story building in Inglewood.

The firefighter, whose name was not released, was undergoing tests at a hospital but was otherwise "fine," said supervising dispatcher Melanie Flores.

About 25 firefighters responded to the report of a fire about 7 a.m. at 3926 W. 102nd St. and extinguished the second-story blaze in about 15 minutes, Flores said.

The cause of the fire was not known.
