A 2-alarm house fire displaced seven people Saturday morning in Santa Clara.

The fire department's official Twitter account posted several pictures of crews battling the blaze.












It was reported at 10:55 a.m., at Mauricia and Gibson Avenues, east of Lawrence Expressway and near Interstate 280.

Neighbors reported the fire, after seeing smoke coming from the garage, Battalion Chief Drew Miller said.

Everyone inside the home was able to escape.
