A fire at a vacant home in Westlake was extinguished in under 30 minutes Wednesday.

Fire crews were called at 3:58 a.m. to a one-story duplex at 231 N. Westlake Ave. with fire coming from the attic, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart.

The roof of the duplex collapsed during the fire and after two searches firefighters did not find any occupants, Stewart said.

It took 34 firefighters 27 minutes to extinguish the fire.

No injuries were reported.
