Fire crews were able to extinguish a blaze that engulfed a two-story hillside home in Eagle Rock Monday evening.
The blaze, dubbed Oak Grove Fire, was reported around 5:44 p.m. at a 1,824 square-foot ascending hillside home near 1104 W. Oak Grove Drive, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
The home largely collapsed during the intense firefight, LAFD said, as 105 firefighters conducted relentless defensive operations for nearly two hours.
The fire extended toward a large amount of thick vegetation on the property, according to the department.
The department could not confirm whether anyone was inside the home at the time of the fire, but said the building would be searched as the mop up continued into the night.
Sky5 was overhead as the 111-year-old home burned and smoke billowed into the air. Aerial footage showed the charred frame of the home with its badly burned roof.
Crews worked to get the fire under control during “a bold defensive exterior attack on a fully involved” structure, according to the department.
“An LAFD helicopter is orbiting the area in an aerial reconnaissance and command support role, reporting no ember cast and no current threat of area wildfire,” LAFD said before the blaze was extinguished.
No firefighters were injured.
