HOLLYWOOD — A fire damaged a vacant Hollywood house and four other nearby structures Friday and left several people with minor injuries, including a firefighter.

The greater-alarm blaze was reported at 9:08 a.m. on the 1200 block of North Bronson Avenue and was extinguished in about 20 minutes by nearly 100 firefighters, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The fire began in a vacant single-story house “that was fully involved on firefighters’ arrival, with fire extension to the attic of an adjacent two-story craftsman-style home to the north, as well as a 900-square-foot guest house at the rear of the property,” according to an LAFD statement.

“Minimal fire extension also occurred and has been contained … at an occupied three-story garden-style apartment building to the south,” the LAFD reported.

Two other vacant buildings on the property also sustained some damage, the LAFD reported.

A fire captain at the scene told KTLA that three people were taken to area hospitals, including a senior who was transported for observation based on her age, a woman with “minor hand and arm injuries” and a man with injuries to his hands.

A firefighter suffered a cut during the firefighting effort and was treated at the scene, said Brian Humphrey of the LAFD.

The cause of the fire was under investigation, Humphrey said, adding that the house had been the site of an early morning fire on Oct. 26.

The fire captain at the scene said the structure where the fire began “does look to be occupied by homeless.”
