LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles city officials have torn down a 6-foot-tall wooden fence surrounding a home whose owners are fighting a bank-ordered eviction.

Bulldozers from the city's Building and Safety Department removed the fence Monday. Officials said it posed a danger and was on public property.

The home has become an encampment of the protest group Occupy San Fernando Valley that has been helping owner Javier Hernandez fight eviction for the past 65 days.

The three-bedroom home was sold at an auction in August after Hernandez failed to make mortgage payments over the past four years. Bank of America says Hernandez failed to submit documents for a loan modification last year.

Hernandez bought the house for $546,000 in 2006.
