Firefighters waged a defensive battle Monday morning against a blaze that heavily damaged a one-story home in Brentwood.

The fire was reported in a 2,537-square-foot house at 4:28 a.m. at 468 N. Tigertail Road, said the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Brian Humphrey.

Arriving firefighters saw heavy flames in an attached garage and fought the flames from outside the house after fire spread through the attic and compromised the integrity of the structure built in 1938, Humphrey said.

The 42 firefighters put out the flames in 69 minutes and no injuries were reported, he said. The cause was under investigation.
