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.
Los Angeles firefighters responded to an attic fire at 523 of Las Casas Avenue in Pacific Palisades on Wednesday, July 23. It was first reported at 11:35 a.m. and knocked down in 47 minutes.
No injuries were reported.
LAFD reports it’s a one story home with its attic “well involved” in the fire. Spokesman Erik Scott said approximately 40 firefighters responded. The cause of the fire is not yet determined.
The Post will provide more updates as they become available.
