Firefighters needed 25 minutes to extinguish the fire in a one-story converted outbuilding in the rear of a property.

Crews responded to 15131 Paddock St., near Telfair Avenue, at 10:14

the Los Angeles Fire Department indicated that all persons who
were inside the building had safely evacuated.

A total of 38 firefighters were able to keep the flames from spreading
to nearby hay, vegetation, and a second structure, and no injuries were reported, according to reports.
