One woman may have been injured today as she fled from a house fire in Venice, a fire department spokesman said.
The blaze inside the two-story residence at 20 E. Anchorage St. was reported at 8:53 a.m., said fire department spokesman Brian Humphrey.
"One woman was being evaluated at the scene for possible injuries she sustained escaping from the fire," Humphrey said. "I don't have a final report yet on her condition."
The department dispatched 39 firefighters to the scene and extinguished the flames in about 12 minutes, Humphrey said.
A damage estimate was not immediately available, and the cause of the fire remained under investigation.
