HOLLYWOOD HILLS (CBS) — Firefighters battled a smoky house fire Friday night in the Hollywood Hills area of the Cahuenga Pass.
The fire, in a house at 7327 Woodrow Wilson Drive, looked to be contained to one area of the home, possibly the garage area.
But firefighters were worried the fire could spread to nearby brush.
Stu Mundel, reporting from Sky9, said it was unclear if the home was occupied or being renovated but that firefighters would knock the fire down to only see it flare up again quickly.
Two firefighters were reportedly overcome with heat exhaustion fighting the blase.
