A Brentwood home fully engulfed in flames Friday morning prompted a large response from firefighters.

The fire began about 4 a.m. in the 300 block of Rockingham Avenue, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesperson Brian Humphrey sated in a news alert.

The property was described as a vacant single-story ranch-style home.

The area around the home is dense with trees that could easily allow the fire to spread.

Nearly 100 firefighters were sent to battle the blaze, Humphrey said.

One firefighter was examined at the scene for exertion, Humphrey said. No other injuries were reported.

“Were pretty much in a knockdown phase,” Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief Patrick Butler said as the home continued to smoker around 7 a.m.

The 7,500 square foot home recently sold for $14 million, according to the real estate site Zillow.com.

Motorists in the vicinity of Sunset Boulevard and Rockingham Avenue were asked to avoid the area and consider an alternate route.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
