Vegetation Fire Spreads To Tujunga Home With ‘Packrat Conditions’

TUJUNGA (CBS) — Firefighters knocked down a blaze at a home in Tujunga described as having “packrat conditions.”

The fire, which started burning in some vegetation, spread to a one-story home and attached garage in the 7000 block of West Sunnycrest Trail.

The blaze was reported to authorities about 2:55 a.m. Sunday, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Matt Spence.

No injuries were reported.

“There were heavy packrat conditions,” he said, adding that it took 51 firefighters just over an hour to put out the flames.

Firefighters then spent time going through the structures making sure all of the embers were out.
