A non-injury house fire in Calabasas prompted the closure of a road leading up to Lupin Hill Elementary School Wednesday, forcing parents to walk their children a half mile to school.
The blaze broke out in the single family home at 7:04 a.m. in the 2600 block of Adamore Road, according to Sgt. Skikas of the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station.
Firefighters quickly doused the flames, cutting a hole in the roof.
Roads were blocked at Adamore and Parkmore Roads, and deputies and parents escorted children to nearby Lupin Hill Elementary School for their safety, according to Skikas.
Parents were asked to walk their kids onto the school campus due to the traffic back-up.
A mom, who only gave her name as Lilly, said she was worried at first.
"There was so much traffic. I had to turn around. I couldn't find this side. I realized I had to park my car," Lilly said.
The woman said she enjoyed some mother-daughter time.
Another mother, Bhawana Dhingra, said she lived down the street.
"I was a little bit scared but everything should be okay," Dhingra said.
The cause of the fire is unknown and investigators are on the scene, Skikas said.
