Firefighters today rescued a mobility-impaired male resident from a house fire in the Eagle Rock area of Los Angeles, a fire official said.
The man, who was on the first floor, suffered some smoke exposure and was in good condition, said Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles City Fire Department.
Firefighters were dispatched at 11:31 a.m. to the two-story home at 4226 Scandia Way, and reported that one room on the second floor was on fire, Humphrey said.
It took 34 firefighters 12 minutes to put out the fire, which was confined to one room on the northeast corner, he said.
A cause of the fire and damage estimates were under investigation.
