Los Angles Fire Department crews knocked down a blaze at 523 N. Ave. 54 at approximatley 3 p.m. on Thursday.

Nobody was injured in the fire, which began in a detached unit behind a home on Avenue 54. Lauren Martinez, who lives at the house with her parents, said that she and her two dogs--Cesar and Loki--were the only ones home at the time the fire started.

While LAFD had yet to determine the cause of the blaze, Martinez said it may have been ignited by a candle that was knocked over.

According to LAFD Spokesman Erik Scott, the fire was confined to a 10-foot by 15-foot area in the house's basement. It took 27 firefighters approximately 26 minutes to put out the blaze.

As of 3:15 p.m. smoke could still be seen billowing out of the unit as firefighters worked to ventilate it by sawing through its roof.
