5-17-2017 Los Angeles Firefighters, Light Force 69 and Engine 23, first on scene on the 800 block of North Las Casas Avenue in Pacific Palisades reported the rear portion of a four story hillside home well involved with fire. LAFD Firefighters quickly laid lines and attacked the fire from the rear of the structure. Firefighters also stretched lines to both adjacent homes, knocking down the fire from both sides, protecting the exposures. Access the fire was difficult due to narrow pathways and a steep drop-off behind the involved house. The fire eventually made it’s way up to the top floor of the four story structure before Firefighters knocked it down in approximately an hours time. The home owner exited safely, there were no reported injuries. Damage was extensive. The cause of the intense pre-dawn blaze is under investigation firelensman
