Vehicle fire damages home in Panorama City
A vehicle fire consumed three cars and a shed and damaged the attic of a nearby home in Panorama City on Saturday afternoon, according to a Los Angeles fire official.
The fire was reported about 4:45 p.m. and appeared to have started with one of the three closely parked cars near a home in the 13900 block of Burton Street, according to Brian Humphrey of the L.A. Fire Department. The blaze engulfed the cars, and flames spread to a shed and into the attic of a nearby one-story single-family home, he said.
Twenty-seven firefighters spent about 30 minutes putting down the blaze, Humphrey said.
Two of the home’s residents—-a man and a woman—-were apparently helped from the home by police before firefighters arrived. They refused treatment at the scene.
The cause of the fire was under investigation, Humphrey said.
