Actress Ashley Greene’s condo reportedly caught fire in West Hollywood on Friday.
The blaze is said to have started near a sofa in her home. Authorities originally were sure if the actress was home when the fire began.
Although officials have determined where the blaze may have started, a representative for the actress stated that the cause of the fire has yet to be determined. However, it’s currently believed that at least one of Ashley Green’s dogs died during the condo fire. The fox terrier was hiding under the bed at the time.
Firefighters were able to rescue the actress’ other dog. The canine was taken by Animal Control.
At least 10 fire trucks responded to the blaze Ashley Greene’s condo. The fire reportedly did significant damage to the inside of the seven-story building. The Daily Mail was able to secure photos of the aftermath.
Other residents inside the building attempted to control the blaze with fire extinguishers. Unfortunately, they were not able to contain the fire.
Reports suggest that Ashley Greene, her brother, and her boyfriend were sleeping in the room where the fire began. All three ran out of the building before realizing that the actress’ dogs were still trapped inside.
Her boyfriend and her brother attempted to run back inside the burning building to retrieve the dogs, but they were unable to reach her condo.
“We made an aggressive fire attack. Our team saw smoke and fire coming from the third floor,” Los Angeles Fire Department Inspector Johnson explained. “We have reports of two patrons that were burned, so they were treated by the paramedics and sent to the hospital.”
This morning’s fire took place at the The Granville Towers apartments on Crescent Heights Boulevard. In addition to Twilight co-star Ashley Greene, the building is also been the home to Mickey Rourke and Portia de Rossi. Marilyn Monroe once lived at this location as well.
Authorities are still investigating what caused Ashley Greene’s condo to catch fire.
