A rubbish fire broke out inside a shotgun style residence this evening in Canoga Park. The residence is sandwiched between two commercial buildings extending to the back or the structure
Twenty-four Firefighters arrived on scene used efforts and skills they learned in training to battle this structure fire and get a handle on it within minutes before it could endanger the surrounding neighborhood which is loaded with blocks of apartment buildings housing large Canoga Park families and children.
While the flames penetrated the roof, Firefighters ran into the burning building and called out for survivors or victims, searching for anyone needing help . No injuries were reported and the cause of this fire is still under investigation.
The residence is allocated on the 7000 block of Deering Ave. The original 911 caller called from a private cellphone from the area of the 7100 block of Deering ave earlier tonight at 8:41 p.m. and Firefighters were dispatched through the 911 operator of Los Angeles emergency 911 system.

It made a lot of curious people which created a traffic jam at the intersections of Canoga Ave. and Sherman Way while Fire and Police tried to get in past the hundred spectators who blocked roads till the Los Angeles Police could get people to re-park their cars and clear the area where fire trucks needed to get in to handle this incident.
