Firefighter injured battling blaze in Pasadena

PASADENA — Two firefighters suffered minor injuries Monday battling a blaze that caused about $200,000 in damage to a large house, authorities said.
The fire was first reported about 1:20 p.m. at a two-story home at 3235 Lombardy Road, Pasadena Fire Department spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said.
Both firefighters were injured by falling debris, she said.
One was hospitalized for treatment, and the other was treated at the scene, Derderian said.
Firefighters extinguished the fire shortly before 2 p.m., she said, and tried to salvage items from the home, including a large collection of books.
“The house had major water damage,” Derderian said.
The Red Cross was summoned to help find lodgings for the three displaced adults, she added. Two of the residence were home when the fire started.
The blaze started on the second floor of the house, Derderian said.
“It spread throughout the attic really quick,” she added.
Derderian said the fire was initially believed to have been sparked by a resident doing some sort of home repair, however further details were not available Sunday.
About 25 firefighters responded to the fire, she said.
