Firefighters quickly doused a small house fire that started in a bedroom in West Long Beach, according to a fire official.
The blaze sparked just after noon on Tuesday, and crews rushed to the scene after a neighbor spotted smoke coming out of the home’s attic in the 3600 block of Easy Avenue, which is just southwest of where the 710 and 405 freeways meet.
Nobody was home when the blaze started, but the homeowner arrived soon after to see the damage. Firefighters were able to knock down the flames quickly, Long Beach Fire Department spokesman Brian Fisk said.
Nobody was hurt. Investigators are still working to determine how much damage the fire caused and what sparked it, Fisk said.
