Firefighters doused a fire in a two-story apartment building in Van Nuys on Sunday morning, a Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman said.
No injuries were reported in the blaze.
The fire began about 9:20 a.m. Flames were visible in the two-story apartment building at 15740 Sherman Way, said Firefighter Erik Scott, a spokesman for the department.
It took 50 firefighters 21 minutes to put out the blaze.
The fire was confined to one unit on the second floor of the 54-unit apartment building. The blaze caused an estimated $105,000 in damage, with $15,000 in contents and $90,000 worth of damage to the structure, according to Scott.
Two adults and two children were displaced, and a smoke alarm allowed them to safely escape, Scott said.
The extent and estimated cost of the fire damage was not immediately clear. The cause of the fire was under investigation.
