Fire injures firefighters, damages two East Palo Alto homes
October 19, 2013, 05:00 AM

Two firefighters were injured and two homes were rendered uninhabitable by a three-alarm fire in East Palo Alto early Friday morning, fire officials said.

The fire at 108 Lotus Way was reported around 2 a.m., according to San Mateo County fire officials.

The blaze, which appears to have started at the rear of the single-story residence, spread to a neighboring home before it was brought under control around 40 minutes later, Menlo Park Fire Protection District Battalion Chief Mike Shaffer said.

All occupants got out of the homes safely and without injury, but two firefighters suffered injuries, Shaffer said.

One was treated at the scene and the other was taken to a hospital and later released.

Both homes were extensively damaged and rendered uninhabitable by the fire, Shaffer said.

The fire’s cause remains under investigation.
