Blaze damages home in Hacienda Heights

HACIENDA HEIGHTS — A fire caused an estimated $350,000 worth of damage to a Hacienda Heights home and its contents Wednesday, officials said.
The blaze was first reported about 3:15 p.m. at a two-story house in the 1600 block of Heather Hill Road, Los Angeles County Fire Department Capt. Bob Cormack said.
Two young men who were inside the home self-evacuated before firefighters arrived, the captain said.
The fire ignited near the garage, apparently as the result of a cigarette left on a couch, and extended into the living area of the home, Cormack said.
The fire caused “significant damage” to the front portion of the home, he added, while the rear portion was saved.
Firefighters “knocked down” the blaze in 15 to 20 minutes, Cormack said.
No injuries were reported.
The two young men displaced by the fire found their own temporary lodgings, Cormack said, and the Red Cross was not needed.
