One person died after a fire ripped through a Glassell Park home Saturday morning, authorities said.
The fire broke out at the home in the 2600 block of West Crestmoore Place about 9:50 a.m. and destroyed the dwelling in the hilly neighborhood, said Margaret Stewart, a spokeswoman with the Los Angeles Fire Department.
The person killed was believed to have lived in the home, Stewart said. The individual's identity has not been released.
Earlier today 2 N/E ofcrs were transported for smoke inhalation after responding to structure fire in Glassell Park. Engulfed in flames as officers attempted to get inside but forced out by heat & smoke. I’m grateful our people will be ok & proud of their bravely & dedication. pic.twitter.com/vizws2TegF
