Police were notified of the fire burning in the 10600 block of North Wilsey Avenue at about 1:20 a.m., said Sgt. Alferez of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Los Angeles firefighters were first to the scene and put out the fire, Alferez said.

While inside the home, firefighters discovered a marijuana grow operation.

Investigators believed the fire may have been started by some of the electrical equipment used in the grow operation.

No one was home at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported, according to Alferez.

The Police Department’s narcotics unit was working with Department of Water and Power officials to determine who was living in the home.

A total of 200 plants were collected from the house, Alferez said.
