Crews quickly doused a small attic fire in an upscale neighborhood near Cal State Long Beach Sunday afternoon.
The blaze broke out around 3:15 p.m. in the 1400 block of La Perla Avenue.
Firefighters tore open the house’s roof to get water on the flames. They quickly put out the blaze and nobody was hurt, Long Beach Fire Department Spokesman Jake Heflin said.
Fire officials couldn’t immediately provide any details on what may have started the fire.
