Flames damaged a two-story craftsman-style house and a nearby single-story residence in the Central-Alameda area of Los Angeles Monday morning.
The fires were reported at 1:38 a.m. at 1712 E. 41st Place, said the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Margaret Stewart. The initial call described a large outside fire that extended into two separate residences.
The 47 firefighters had both fires out in 29 minutes and searched both structures to be sure no one was inside, Stewart said. “The second story of the two-story craftsman was too damaged to allow for a search.”
No injuries were reported, she said.
