Fire Sunday damaged an attic at a one-story building in the Vermont Vista community of Los Angeles, authorities said.
The 28 firefighters dispatched at 12:57 p.m. to 767 W. 97th St. had the blaze out within 39 minutes of their arrival, the Los Angeles Fire Department reported.
“They (firefighters) had to work their way through all four units to locate the stubborn fire while crews conducted salvage operations to protect the interior/belongings in the units,” according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department. “The fire was prevented from extending down into the living space.”
No injuries were reported and a cause of the fire was under investigation.
