Residents who were evacuated as a precaution were allowed back into their homes.
Less than 10 minutes later, a fire was reported on the 1200 block of Ninth Avenue in Inglewood.
Responding to that call, firefighters found smoke coming from a third floor suite in the mixed-use building.
Again there were no injuries but the suite of origin was heavily damaged and there was moderate smoke damage to the third floor of the building.
The fire department said cause of the fire is under investigation.
