“There is no fire and everyone is OK and safe,” a representative for Washington confirmed to Fox News.
A smoke investigation was completed after evacuating the family members from the household, a report by the Los Angeles Police Department said, according to Fox News.

Fire officials claimed there was no active fire at the time of arrival, but smoke was coming from “one of several furnaces in the home that was recently serviced” in a published update. There were no injuries reported at the time.
I’m thankful this isn’t any worse than it was. This whole situation could have ended terribly, but I’m glad it was just smoke and I hope there is no damage to the home.
