A single story home in the 2100 block of Grand Oaks Avenue in Altadena suffered “major damage throughout” after an early Tuesday morning fire erupted in a back bedroom. There were no injuries to the occupants.

A Los Angles County Fire Department spokesperson said the blaze was called in 6:44 a.m.

Neighbors saw smoke around 6:45 a.m. and started banging on the door to alert the occupants, a witness said.

Responding crews were able to knock down the blaze by 7:09 a.m., but by that time the fire had caused extensive damage.

Pasadena Fire Department sent an engine to “assist,” said spokesperson Lisa Derderian.

Authorities were working to discover the cause of the blaze. Investigators were on scene interviewing the home’s occupants even as crews remained at the scene were overhauling.
