Multiple agencies assisted Los Angeles County Fire that responded to a call concerning a structure fire in the 2800 block of Altura Avenue on Wednesday evening.
“The call came in at 7 p.m. from the [LA Sheriffs/Crescenta Valley Station]. It was a two-story single-family residence. The structure [as of 7:17 p.m.] was well-involved,” said Michael Pittman, LACoFD supervisor fire dispatcher.
According to a witness, firefighters ventilated the roof and flames shot up.
At press time there were no injuries reported. Pittman said there were no other buildings threatened at the time. The fire appeared to be in the back of the home.
La Crescenta avenue was closed from Mayfield to Prospect avenues.
