SAN PEDRO (CNS) - Firefighters quickly extinguished a roof fire at Cabrillo Avenue Elementary School in San Pedro today, and no injuries were reported.

The fire was reported at 12:11 p.m. at 732 S. Cabrillo Ave., said Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

``The first arriving 30 LAFD firefighters took less than 15 minutes to access, confine and fully extinguish a `surface only' roof fire atop the two-story Cabrillo Avenue Elementary School,'' Humphrey said.

``All ... building occupants were calmly and safely evacuated from the structure by school staff prior to LAFD arrival,'' he added.

``Though technicians were on-site performing `hot work' roof repairs at the time of the fire, the specific cause of the blaze is under investigation,'' Humphrey said.
