A woman was found dead Thursday at the scene of a fire that damaged her house in Brentwood.

Firefighters sent to the 400 block of South Cliffwood Avenue at 5:54 a.m. found the woman dead on the first floor of the two-story building, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Information on her identity was not immediately available.

The fire was extinguished in about a half hour, the LAFD reported. The cause of the fire was under investigation.

A neighbor called the fire department to report the blaze, according to the LAFD, which reported that the woman, described as “elderly,” was found dead in her home.

The woman reportedly was in her 90s, and had lived in the neighborhood for decades, according to Fox 11.
