ANGELENO HEIGHTS — Firefighters knocked down a fire that broke out in a two-story, Craftsman-style home in the 1000 block of W. Kensington Road this afternoon, preventing the blaze from reaching the attic.

It took about 30 minutes to extinguish the blaze after it was reported at about 4:20 p.m., the L.A. Fire Department said on Twitter. No injuries were reported.

  1. Happy to hear no injuries reported! The two Rottweiler-esque dogs that live there are so sweet and funny. Can you confirm they are fine and dandy, please and thank you?

  2. Thanks, again, LAFD.

  3. The blaze ended at 4:20? That seems backwards.

  4. Yes. The dogs are fine.

  5. The woman who lives there posted this on NextDoor this morning if anyone knows of a place she can rent temporarily:

    “My house is the one that partially burned on Thursday and I am looking for a temporary rental that will allow me to stay with my dogs while the repairs are being made. The insurance company says it could take between 4 and 6 months. If anyone knows of anything that might work, please let me know.
