   Television and movie props that included a robot from the science fiction series Lost in Space were saved from destruction in Valley Village due to the efforts of Los Angeles firefighters. The LAFD responded to a garage fire in the 5100 block of Whitsett Ave.

   Firefighters attacked the blaze, which was electrical in nature, a fire department spokesman told a photographer at the scene. The home belongs to a prop designer and special effects artist who was out of town at the time, according to a caretaker who woke to the smell of smoke.

   The iconic robot is best remembered for his comedic interactions with Will Robinson, played by Billy Mumy; and Dr. Zachary Smith, played by Jonathan Harris. The voice of the robot was provided by Dick Tufeld. He reprised his audio role in the big screen reboot of the beloved television classic. The voice actor passed away in 2012.

   The robot unfortunately lost his space, and needs a home.    ROBOT  JONATHAN HARRIS
