ALAMEDA, Calif. —
A two-alarm fire that damaged six apartments in Alameda early Tuesday morning caused about $1 million in damage, a fire captain said.
Fire officials received a report of a fire at 1203 Park St., near San Jose Avenue, at 2:37 a.m., Alameda fire Capt. Jim Colburn said.
Firefighters arrived at the three-story building within minutes to find flames on the building's top two floors.
The fire did not spread to the two commercial units on the ground floor, a clothing store and a nail salon, although one of the businesses may have water damage, Colburn said.
The fire was under control at 4:27 a.m. It was contained to the building and did not affect neighboring structures.
At least six residents in the six apartments on the second and third floors have been displaced. The American Red Cross responded to the scene to assist them, Colburn said.
There was a total of about $1 million in damage to the building and its contents, Colburn said.
The fire started in an apartment on the third floor of the building, but the cause remains under investigation, he said.
No injuries were reported.
