A fire that was accompanied by explosions from live ammunition destroyed a house near the Chevy Chase Country Club Thursday and killed a family dog before it was extinguished.
The family, away at the time, and two other dogs survived — one after it was pulled from the house and revived by firefighters. No other injuries were reported.
The fire, which broke out in the second-floor of a two-story home in the 3100 block of Linda Vista Road, was reported by a postal worker at 1:35 p.m., Glendale Fire Capt. Stuart Stefani said.
“A mail carrier on scene stated that there was a fire at the house and there were dogs and possibly ammunition inside,” Stefani said.
Engines from the Glendale, Pasadena and Los Angeles County fire departments responded to the scene and found the house already engulfed in flames, Stefani said. The blaze was extinguished shortly after 2 p.m.
