The Los Angeles County Fire Department responded to a fire that broke out Wednesday on West Second Street in Pomona.
Five engines, two trucks, two battalion chiefs and a paramedic squad reacted to calls at 5:46 p.m. and had it under control in 30 minutes, Battalion Chief Kyle Zuniga said.
He said the flames started in the garage and spread to a small part of the house.
No injuries were reported.
The cause is still under investigation, but Zuniga said at least one truck was burned.
“There is a lot of stuff back there and we don’t know what started the fire,” Zuniga said.
Pomona resident Shannon Sears saw the smoke and came to the scene.
“I saw the charred car inside, through the fence,” Sears said.
Neighbor Anthony Herrera said he saw flames and smoke coming from the house around 5:30 p.m. and called the fire department, but was told responders were already on the way.
“We were just sitting outside and we saw smoke and flames,” Herrera said.
Herrera and other neighbors watched as firefighters put out the fire.
