A fire damaged a house in the View Park area of Los Angeles County near Leimert Park Friday, but no one was hurt.
Firefighters sent to the 3600 block of Mount Vernon Drive at 4:07 a.m. extinguished the flames in the three-story building in about 90 minutes, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
Part of the roof collapsed, and firefighters went into a defensive mode, battling the blaze from the exterior, and prevented the flames from spreading to adjacent structures.
The cause of the fire, which heavily damaged the building, was under investigation.
