Personnel with the Los Angeles County Fire Department and the Los Angeles Fire Department also responded to the scene, where at least three individuals were taken to the hospital, according to an incident report from the LAFD. 

“Firefighters assessed, treated and transported three patients, all in at least serious condition,” read the statement.
