PACIFIC PALISADES—On Thursday, July 8, at approximately 3:49 a.m., firefighters with the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) responded to a structure fire in the 700 block of N. Paseo Miramar.

Upon arrival, firefighters discovered a one-story hillside home with heavy fire showing. All occupants were out of the home, but firefighters had trouble reaching all pockets of the fire due to the instability of the structure and hillside location.

It took 78 firefighters a total of 1 hour and 43 minutes to fully extinguish the flames. Firefighters were able to prevent the blaze from extending into the adjacent brush.

LAFD Urban Search and Rescue and LA Department of Building and Safety evaluated the structure for shoring needs and occupancy determination. There were no reported injuries and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
