UPDATE 2:03 p.m.

LAFD spokesman Erik Scott tells the Post the cause of the fire being reviewed by arson investigation, and the total amount of damage is still being calculated.

Also, since Las Casas Avenue is a one-way street near the house fire, some residents were unable to exit the area. Authorities on scene said it would take at least one hour before the road will reopen.
