A fire engulfed a large outbuilding and at least one vehicle on a property in Sylmar Friday, but no one was hurt.

Firefighters sent to the 13000 block of North Fellows Avenue about 10:45 a.m. extinguished the flames in about an hour, according to Nicholas Prange of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Arriving firefighters found several other structures threatened, Prange said. About a dozen horses on an adjacent property were agitated but harmed.

“Firefighters successfully protected nearby buildings and livestock,” Prange said. “The fire extended into some nearby trees.”

Nearly 120 firefighters were assigned to the scene, and some remained at the location dousing hot spots. The cause of the fire was under investigation.
