West Hollywood, CA -

(FOX 11) A fire damaged an apartment building in West Hollywood, leaving three people injured. The unit was the home of 26-year-old "Twilight" actress Ashley Greene.

Firefighters sent to 1424 N. Crescent Heights Blvd. about 9:50 a.m. extinguished the flames in about 20 minutes, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Paramedics examined three people at the scene for unspecified injuries, but none was transported for hospital treatment, fire officials said.

"Ashley was home at the time with her boyfriend and brother when the fire broke out on the living room sofa. They were sleeping at the time, and quickly evacuated before anyone was hurt," TMZ reported. "Once they realized Ashley's dogs were still inside, the two boys rushed back to save them ... but couldn't."

One of her dogs died. In a photo released by TMZ, Ashley is seen craddling the deceased dog.

The cause of the fire was under investigation. A damage estimate was not immediately available.

A variety of celebrities have lived in the historic building, known as the Granville Towers.
