Firefighters battle a blaze at a multimillion-home in Brentwood on Friday morning.

A fire erupted in a multimillion-dollar home in Brentwood on Friday morning, triggering a large response from firefighters

The blaze was reported about 4 a.m. in the 300 block of N. Rockingham Ave., just a few doors down from where football player and actor O.J. Simpson lived in the 1990s.

More than 100 Los Angeles firefighters responded to the incident as flames chewed through the roof of the 7,552 square-foot single-story home. The six-bedroom ranch-style home was built in 1950 and had recently sold for $13.7 million, according to property records.

Fire crews extinguished the blaze about 6:30 a.m. Several firefighters were treated for exertion over the course of the more than two-hour battle, officials said.


The home was vacant when firefighters arrived and no other injuries were reported. Fire officials are investigating to determine what sparked the blaze.
