A two-car fire brought firefighters out in force to an apartment complex on Del Valle Street in Woodland Hills Wednesday morning.
The cars were located in an underground parking garage directly below the apartments. In addition to the two cars involved in the fire, three additional cars suffered damaged by exposure to the flames, according to Los Angeles Fire Department Chief Joseph Foley.
Though smoke filtered up to the building's second and third floors, no units were damaged and nobody was injured in the blaze, Foley said.
The fire chief credited a swift attack by the department for preventing more damage. A total of 11 department vehicles responded to the blaze at 22900 W. Del Valle St., which began shortly before 9 a.m.
The cause of the fire was yet to be determined, Foley said. Witnesses said there was no explosion, but reported seeing dark smoke coming from the garage.
