Calls came from all around Burbank as residents saw smoke in the west sky.  It turned out to be a fire on the Los Angeles border as a two-story apartment complex caught fire on the corner of Clybourn and Edison.

It took 119 Los Angeles City Firefighters 43 minutes to put out the fire that started somewhere on the outside before moving to the first floor and finally into the attic and came through the roof.  Firefighters reported a partial roof collapse.

The LAFD reported that 13 family have been displaced by the fire and will be assisted by the Red Cross.  There were no injuries reported to residents or firefighters.
