Stove fire snuffed out with garden hose, one suffers smoke inhalation

A small stove fire extinguished by firefighters using a garden hose Monday morning prompted a request for ambulance for someone suffering smoke inhalation. The fire broke inside a home on Oak Pluma Court near Winsome Circle, inside the Friendly Valley community, shortly before 10:25 a.m. “Light smoke was showing from the front door,” a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department told The Signal. “All occupants were outside the house when firefighters arrived,” he said, noting they got to the fire at 10:30 a.m. Firefighters discovered it was a stove fire and extinguished it using a garden hose. A few minutes after the fire was out, a request was made by firefighters to have an ambulance come to the scene for reports of at least one person suffering from smoke inhalation.
