Firefighters knocked down a stubborn house fire that burned part of a converted garage and damaged a vehicle parked in a carport Saturday in Sun Valley.
The blaze inside a home at 8828 N. Ilex Ave. was reported just after 6 p.m., Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart said.
The house suffered major damage and at least two sides of the converted garage were burned, Stewart said.
The department sent 76 firefighters to the scene and extinguished the flames in just over 50 minutes, she said.
No victims were reported and the cause of the fire remained under investigation.
