Fire Damages Hillside House in Tujunga Area


TUJUNGA (CNS) - A fire damaged a hillside house in the Tujunga area today, but no one was hurt.

Firefighters sent to the 7000 block of West Floramorgan Trail at 9:03 a.m. extinguished the flames in the two-story structure in about an hour and 10 minutes, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

“The fire was well-developed on the bottom floor when firefighters arrived, and it was already extending to the upper floor,'' Nicholas Prange of the LAFD said. “Structural integrity was in question and led firefighters to use defensive tactics, remaining outside and flowing water inward.''

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
