A man was hospitalized Thursday after fire raced through a home in the San Fernando Valley.
The home, reported to the Los Angeles Fire Department as a sober-living facility in the 14200 block of West Judd Street, sustained damage to the second story and attic, the LAFD said in an alert.
Aerial footage from Sky5 showed visible damage to the home’s roof with smoke billowing from multiple openings on and near the top of the structure.
It took 42 firefighters 39 minutes to extinguish the fire.
Of the home’s 11 occupants, a 41-year-old man, was transported to a local hospital in serious condition with burn and respiratory injuries, officials said.
Arson investigators responded to the fire; however, the cause was under investigation.
