LOS FELIZ (CBSLA) – A man suffered serious burns and his dog died after a fire engulfed their two-story hillside home in Los Feliz Monday morning.
The blaze was reported at around 9:45 a.m. in the 3700 block of West Evans Street. Los Angeles Fire Department crews arrived to find the second-floor of the home ablaze.
A 27-year-old man with severe burns was rushed to a nearby hospital in serious condition, the fire department said. Firefighters searched the home and found an unresponsive dog. They attempted to resuscitate the dog, but it died on scene.
