A blaze at a two-story, 12-unit apartment building in Los Feliz that killed three pets was largely confined to one unit, where crews encountered “excessive personal storage,” a Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman said.

About 45 firefighters were sent to the 8,381-square-foot building at 1744 N. Winona Blvd. at 2:09 p.m. and had the flames extinguished in about 25 minutes, said the LAFD’s Brian Humphrey.

No human injuries were reported, but two dogs and a cat could not be saved, Humphrey said.

The fire was contained to the apartment where it started, and the attic, he said, noting that the 70-year-old building was not equipped with optional fire sprinklers.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
