Three displaced after duplex fire
November 22, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A one-alarm fire at a Redwood City duplex this morning has displaced three residents, a battalion chief said.

The fire was reported at 8:14 a.m. in the 1200 block of Junipero Avenue, Battalion Chief Dave Pucci said.

Crews doused the flames and had the fire under control around 8:40 a.m., Pucci said.

The fire was contained to one unit of the duplex and started in a bedroom, according to Pucci.

The building and its contents were destroyed, he said.

The American Red Cross is assisting the three adults who live in the home with alternate housing.

The residents were home when the fire started but were able to get out of the house on their own, Pucci said.

No injuries were reported.

The conjoined unit was unoccupied when the fire started. A pet rabbit and dog at that home were uninjured, Pucci said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, he said.
