LOS ANGELES (AP) — Investigators want to question two potential witnesses who were near a downtown Los Angeles fire last week that reduced an apartment construction site to ashes.

Authorities released separate videos of two men taken near the scene.

In one, a man wearing a dark jacket and baseball cap appears to attempt to climb over a fence along the edge of the fire, but is pulled to safety by firefighters.

In another, a man with a backpack and sports jersey walks along a darkened street.

A statement Monday from the Los Angeles Fire Department said the men are not considered suspects.

Investigators are asking for the public's help identifying them.

More than 250 firefighters fought the blaze Dec. 8, that sent up flames that were visible for miles.
