TMZ first reported Ashley Greene’s West Hollywood apartment was destroyed in a early morning fire on Friday. Apparently her boyfriend and her brother managed to wake up in time to escape the blaze, which broke out on a couch in the living room.
Unfortunately the two men were unsuccessful in their attempts to return to rescue Greene’s pets. By the time firefighters were able to get the fire under control, they could only save one of the two animals, and found the other dead in a hiding spot under Greene’s bed.
“We were dispatched at 9:50 a.m. PST to reports of a highrise fire,” Inspector Quvondo Johnson of the Los Angeles County Fire Department told the Daily News. “We did see smoke and fire from the third floor when we arrived. Based on the occupany load of the building, we quickly raised it to a two alarm fire.”
Fifty-five firefighters responded to the scene and brought the fire under control by 10:07 a.m. PST.
