PALOS VERDES ESTATES — One person was killed when fire struck a home in Palos Verdes Estates, authorities said Monday.

The fire was reported at 11:05 p.m. Sunday on the 600 block of Via Del Monte, said Los Angeles County Fire Department Dispatch Supervisor Imy McBride.

The first arriving firefighters reported the two-story home was “fully charged with smoke,” McBride said.
