A fire that broke out Monday afternoon in a nearly 70-year-old Brentwood home left a woman hospitalized with burn injuries, fire officials said.
The blaze was reported about 4:45 p.m. in a 2,454-square-foot home in the 1800 block of North Old Orchard Road, near Mandeville Canyon Road, according to Nicholas Prange of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
“Firefighters utilized a transitional attack to cool the atmosphere in the main fire room and then advanced hoses inside to finish extinguishing the fire in 42 minutes,” he said.
A woman was taken to a hospital with burn injuries of unspecified severity and a man was treated at the scene but declined to be transported to a hospital, according to Prange. Their names were not released.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
