According to Captain Steve Lopez, of LACFD, when firefighters arrived on scene the front portion and patio of the home were already fully engulfed. The craftsman style home was built in 1913 according to public records.

Lopez  said there were two people living at the residence and both of them were able to escape unharmed. He also mentioned that the back bedrooms were spared from the fire but did have smoke damage.

At the time of this story, Lopez suspects that the fire was started by something electrical near the front patio area.
