The Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to a house fire in Saugus Thursday night.

Reports of a fire on the 20000 block of Zimmerman Place were called in to the Fire Department at approximately 7:30 p.m.

“A call came in about a vehicle on fire, which was in the garage of a two-story residence,” said Michael Pittman, supervising fire dispatcher with the Fire Department.

It was later confirmed two cars were involved with the structure fire, according to Melinda Choi, supervising fire dispatcher.

Ron Osborn, witness at the scene, said he saw flames coming from the garage and neighbors were spraying the house with hoses.

The fire was extinguished just after 8:15 p.m., according to Pittman.

“Right now, we’re just waiting for investigators to come take a look and determine a cause,” Pittman said.

People inside the residence were being treated on the scene, but no one was transported to the hospital.

Firefighters remained on the scene checking for “hot spots,” Pittman said, or wet spots where flames were previously burning.
