It took more than 70 firefighters and about 30 minutes to knockdown a fire at home in Studio City Saturday morning.The fire was reported at about 12:30 a.m. on the 3600 block of Avenida del Sol near Coldwater Canyon Avenue.

Only one person was in the home during the fire. The person was awakened by the sound of breaking glass and was able to get out unhurt.

Crews were worried that flying embers could ignite nearby brush, so they brought in water-dropping helicopters.

No other structures were damaged by the fire. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
