Paramedics responded to a medical call at the home of "Star Trek" actor Leonard Nimoy, who has lung disease, and took one person to an area hospital, fire officials confirm.

LAFD spokeswoman Katherine Main said firefighters went to the 800 block of Stone Canyon Road in Bel-Air about 7:31 a.m. Thursday. One patient was hospitalized. She would not confirm that it was Nimoy, but property records show the 83-year-old actor lives at the home.

A representative with Nimoy’s agent, Bob Gersh, declined to comment about the actor’s health.

Nimoy, who gained fame in the role of Spock, announced Jan. 29 on Twitter that he had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The disease blocks airflow, produces excess mucus and makes it hard to breathe, according the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. COPD includes two conditions – emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

“I quit smoking 30 yrs ago,” he tweeted. “Not soon enough. I have COPD. Grandpa says, quit now!! LLAP.”

LLAP stands for Spock's catchphrase: Live long and prosper.

Earlier reports indicated that Nimoy was taken to UCLA Medical Center. It is not clear whether the actor remains hospitalized.

A UCLA Medical Center spokesman on Monday said the hospital could not "confirm, deny or acknowledge" Nimoy was at the hospital.

On Sunday, a tweet from Nimoy's account said, “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP”
