A 1:55 a.m. house fire in the 100 block of Sequoia Drive caused an estimated $750,000 in damage but no injuries this morning, a Pasadena Fire Dept. official reports.

The home is just blocks from the closed Station 39, shuttered last April after a seismic study found it unsafe.

Responding fire units were from Station 31, according to the official.  Upon arrival Truck 31 found the large three-story house with heavy smoke and fire showing from the second floor.

A total of five fire engines, two trucks, one rescue ambulance and 35 Fire Dept. personnel responded. Pasadena Police were on hand for traffic control, officials say.

No cause for the fire has yet been determined. Officials say two adults and one child were displaced.

[UPDATED Oct. 4, 2011 at 3:10 p.m.] In response to queries from Pasadena Now, the Pasadena Fire Dept. released response times recorded in connection with this morning’s fire in the 100 block of Sequoia Drive.
