Firefighters called to a house fire in Castaic early Monday morning remained at the scene for about an hour making sure the fire was extinguished.

Firefighters with the Los Angeles County Fire Department received reports of a house on fire shortly before 6:30 a.m. of a house on fire on 27000 block of West Beacon Street, between North Cambridge Avenue and Rockport Way, in Castaic.

“The reports were for something smoldering inside the house,” Fire Department spokeswoman Vanessa Lozano told The Signal Monday morning.
