Early morning fire damages beachfront Malibu home

A beachfront home in Malibu suffered extensive damage in a fire Saturday morning, while busy Pacific Coast Highway was closed temporarily as firefighters battled the blaze, authorities said.

Firefighters were dispatched about 7:28 a.m. and found the home on the 18900 block of Pacific Coast Highway, just west of Topanga Canyon, engulfed in flames, said Michael Pittman, supervising fire dispatcher with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

The fire was extinguished in about 20 minutes.

No injuries were reported. Fire investigators were on scene but the cause of the fire remains undetermined.
