SAN LEANDRO -- A two-alarm fire burned a home in unincorporated San Leandro this morning in what authorities say is the second blaze at that address in just under four months.

Firefighters responded about 4:50 a.m. to the two-story home in the 2000 block of Altamont Road and discovered heavy smoke pouring from the garage, fire officials said. Though crews contained the fire by 7 a.m., they remained at the scene well into Sunday morning because of concerns about the home's structural integrity.

A firefighter fell through a partially-collapsed floor while battling the blaze, but was located without injury, Alameda County Fire spokeswoman Aisha Knowles said. No injuries have been reported in the blaze.

The incident marked the second fire at the home in about four months, the last occurring Nov. 4, Knowles said. Early indications suggest the second blaze may have been started by squatters in the home, which has been boarded up and empty since the last fire.
