Firefighters responded at 9:48 p.m. to a one-story bungalow at 6062 Fountain Ave., near Gower Street, where they located the fire in one room and began an offensive fire attack, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart.

The blaze was quickly extinguished and as firefighters searched the building they found the victim.
