The fire was reported at about 8 a.m. in the 12000 block of Kenny Drive, according to Katherine Main of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The blaze apparently started outside the single-story home and spread to the interior, Main said.

Arriving firefighters found the back of the home already on fire, according to main.

Aerial video from Sky5 showed firefighters attempting to cut holes in the roof of the home to provide ventilation.

Six fire trucks and two ambulances responded to the fire, according to Main.

Smoke and flames were being pushed by gusty 10 to 15 mph winds blowing through the area.

The cause of the fire was unknown.
