Echo Park  — Firefighters took about 30 minutes to extinguish a fire that broke out this afternoon in a garage and spread to the attic of the attached home, the LA Fire Department said.

But the fire, which was reported at 2:47 pm in the 1900 block of Lake Shore Avenue, was prevented from spreading to adjacent homes and brush. There were no injuries but one dog was brought out of the structure in unknown condition.

Downed wires created a safety hazard in the area, said the LAFD. But it’s not clear if they played a role in the fire.
