Attic fire hits Studio City hillside home
Fire damaged a Studio City home early Saturday morning, burning in the attic, walls and floor before being extinguished by firefighters in 32 minutes.
Crews responded at 12:03 a.m. to the 3700 block of Berry Drive, south of Ventura Boulevard, and discovered fire in the attic of the hillside home, according to Nicholas Prange of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
“Companies inside protected belongings prior to applying water, while firefighters on the roof cut ventilation holes, but left the roofing in place until water was ready to be applied,” Prange said. “The coordinated effort minimized damage from water, fire, and smoke.”
A knockdown was called at 12:35 a.m.
No injuries were reported, and the cause of the fire was under investigation.
