Eastside 911 fire placeholder

East Hollywood -- It took firefighters about 20 minutes this morning to knock down a garage fire that at one point threatened nearby structures.

Fire crews were called to the 900 block of N. Ardmore Avenue at about 8 am in response to a fire in a detached garage, said the L.A. Fire Department. The garage was fully engulfed in flames and smoke was visible from one of the two adjacent structures.

No injuries were reported, and LAFD arson investigators have been called in as part of the investigation into what caused the blaze.

Update: Firefighters were called back to the area early Monday night after a fire broke out in a vacant house nearby in the 4800 block of West Lemon Grove Avenue, said the L.A. Fire Department. 

The second blaze was extinguished in about 15 without any injuries reported, according to an LAFD spokeswoman. Arson investigators were also called in to that fire.
