An attic fire on the 29800 block of Pinecone Place in Castaic prompted a large-scale response by the Los Angeles County Fire Department on Thursday.
The fire began at approximately 3:30 p.m. and took about 20 minutes to knock down, according to Bernard Peters, supervising fire dispatcher with the L.A. County Fire Department.
Peters confirmed the fire began in the second story of the home in either the loft or attic. Firefighters were able to get onto the roof and break a window on the second story to attack the blaze from the roof.
While neighbors were speculating about the cause of the fire, it is still under investigation.
The home was vacant when the fire broke out, as the homeowner was out of town. No one was injured as a result.
