The blaze was first reported just after 7:00 a.m. on N. San Fernando Road, where fire and smoke were showing from a row of single-story businesses. 

Los Angeles Fire Department crews were dispatched to the scene of the fire and were able to contain the blaze to one 50-foot by 65-foot unit, in what appeared to be a marijuana grow operation. 

It took 38 units just 29 minutes to extinguish the flames and contain the situation. 

A cause of fire was still unknown.
