Four people found themselves displaced Friday following a noninjury electrical fire that broke out in the attic of their large home in the Hollywood Hills and caused $300,000 in damage, the Los Angeles Fire Department reported.
The fire in the nearly 4,000-square-foot hillside home at 1500 N. Forest Knoll Dr. was reported at 9:10 p.m. Thursday and knocked down in 38 minutes, department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.
Seventy-six L.A. city firefighters and a Los Angeles County Fire Department engine company from a station in West Hollywood contained the blaze to the attic of the wood-frame and stucco structure, he said.
Two adults and two adolescents were displaced and sought temporary accommodation, Humphrey said. Damage was estimated at $200,000 to the structure and $100,000 to its contents, he said.
"The cause of the blaze was declared to be electrical in nature," he said. There were no injuries.
