Fire strikes vacant Cypress Park home twice in two months

Cypress Park — Firefighters may have had a sense of deja vu this afternoon when responding to a blaze in a vacant home that caught fire less than two months ago.

It took fire crews less than half an hour to extinguish the blaze “at a vacant home that was the site of a previous blaze” before it spread to surrounding structures in the 3400 block of N. Figueroa Street, the L.A. Fire Department said on Twitter.

One firefighter sustained a non-life-threatening injury and was treated at the scene of the fire, which began at about 2 p.m.

No other injuries were reported and there were not reports of anyone missing, said the LAFD.

The fire in mid July in the same block began at about 10 pm and was quickly extinguished without an reports of injury. The house was said to be vacant at that time.
