Fire Damages Annette Funicello’s Encino Home, 3 Taken To Hospital

ENCINO (CBS) — A fire damaged actress Annette Funicello’s Encino home Thursday.

Firefighters sent to 3166 North Fond Drive at 7:21 a.m. doused the flames in 24 minutes, Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department said.

Three people, two women and one man, were taken to a local hospital for smoke inhalation. Fire officials say they are in good condition.

A neighbor tells KCAL 9 that Funicello was home at the time of the fire and was one of the women taken to the hospital.

Funicello, 68, rose to fame as a Mouseketeer on Disney’s orginal “Mickey Mouse Club” in the 1950s.

The cause of the fire was under investigation. A damage estimate was not immediately available.

Arson investigators were called to the scene.
