Los Angeles County firefighters climbed the rooftop of a house to extinguish the last remnants of a structure fire off Barbacoa Drive in Saugus.

Fire officials responded to the call at 5:57 p.m., and called it a “knockdown” by 6:47 p.m.

“(We) got on scene to a two-story single family dwelling,” said Miguel Ornelas, a supervising fire dispatcher.

The fire displaced four residents, said the dispatcher.

No victims were transported, according to Ornelas, but the fire burnt through much of the second floor.
