OAKLAND, Calif. —
Firefighters put out a fire at two-story home in Oakland Wednesday afternoon, an Oakland fire battalion chief said.
The one-alarm fire, which was reported at 1:10 p.m., started underneath a staircase outside the rear of a house in the 1000 block of 44th Avenue, Battalion Chief Melinda Drayton said.
The blaze, which spread to both floors of the home, was put out in about 20 minutes, she said.
Two rooms sustained minor fire damage, while other parts of the house had water damage, she said.
The American Red Cross was called to find temporary housing for those living at the home, she said.
No injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, she said.
