Two adults were displaced after a one-alarm fire damaged their Union City home Monday morning, fire officials said.
According to the Alameda County Fire Department, a resident reported the blaze around 11:05 a.m. on the 2700 block of Cherry Blossom Way. The resident, who was home alone at the time, evacuated the home safely before fire crews arrived, said Battalion Chief Terrence Carey.
The fire originated in a small room next to the kitchen and caused smoke damage throughout the home, Carey said.
The fire will displace the two occupants of the home, added Alameda County Fire Department spokeswoman Aisha Knowles. The Red Cross has been contacted to assist the residents, she said.
About 21 firefighters responded to the scene and extinguished the fire in 15 minutes, officials said.
No known injuries were reported.
The cause of fire is under investigation.
