Fire officials were on scene at the 25000 block of Anderson Lane at approximately 9:20 p.m. 

A Los Angeles County Fire Department spokesperson confirmed there was no one transported from the address for the treatment of injuries. 

By about 9:40 p.m., there were numerous Sheriff’s Department vehicles “staked out around the house,” according to Shirley Miller, spokeswoman for the SCV Sheriff’s Station.

The situation was cleared around 10 p.m., according to Miller.

 “Nobody is home,” she said. “At this point, they’re believing it’s a prank.”
