The non-injury fire broke out in the front room of the home on the 9100 block of Monogram Avenue just after midnight.

“After knocking down most of the bulk of the fire inside the house, firefighters attacking the fire discovered some type of marijuana growing operation,” said LAFD Batt. Chief Mark Saxelby.

The plants allegedly found inside the home were in various stages of development, CBS2’s Joy Benedict reported.

Investigators say they also found hydroponic equipment which is typically used for growing plants without the use of dirt.

“We’re looking about close to 300 plants that are still intact and maybe a couple hundred that might have burned in this front room here,” said LAPD Sgt. John Kielbasa.
