Small Attic Fire Damages Beverly Hills Home

Posted: Tuesday, August 8, 2017 – 2:42 PM

An attic fire damaged a Beverly Hills home Tuesday, but no one was hurt.

The blaze inside the one-story, single-family residence at 5456 Hillgreen Place was reported at 11:57 a.m. Nearly four dozen firefighters knocked down the blaze in 25 minutes, confining the flames to the attic.

Los Angeles Fire Department personnel were dispatched because the address was initially misreported as being in LAFD jurisdiction, spokeswoman Margaret Stewart said.

“Once the (house) was located, we updated the address and notified Beverly Hills Fire Department, but we handled the fire,” she said.

There was no immediate word on what sparked the fire.
