Tanzosh also said there was significant debris inside.
To attack the fire, Tanzosh directed Tower Ladder Cos.
"We want the building taken down," Tanzosh said."It is unsafe to the point where we can't commit personnel to it."
A large crack on the building's northern corner is cause for concern, Tanzosh said, adding that some trucks parked in the adjacent Verizon Wireless lot were moved to a safer area.

Firefighters were summoned to the blaze by a 911 call at about 12:50 p.m., said Deputy Chief William Tanzosh. When they arrived, about three minutes after, they found flames coming out of the building's front window.

The fire centered on a couch in the living room, Tanzosh said, and when firefighters checked the rear bedroom, they found Ms. Browning "unconscious and unresponsive" on the bed. Although the flames had not reached the bedroom, she was surrounded by smoke and toxic fumes, he said.
"They removed her, performed CPR. EMS arrived on the scene, continued CPR," Tanzosh said. A cat living in the apartment died in the blaze, he said.
Tanzosh said firefighters had not found a smoke alarm in the apartment.
The cause of the blaze remains under investigation, he said.
