Firefighters doused a structure fire in part of Pacoima on Sunday afternoon.

The fire started as a large outdoor garbage fire at 10219 North San Fernando Road, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The flames then spread to the rear and attic of a nearby one-story church. The church was unoccupied, the LAFD said, but the fire “largely involved” the building.

A total of 71 LAFD firefighters put out the fire, categorized as a Major Fire fire, after a total of 63 minutes.
