LIVERMORE -- One person was airlifted to a burn center for injuries sustained in a two-alarm fire Thursday morning at an apartment complex in Livermore, fire officials said.

The blaze in the 900 block of Murrieta Boulevard was reported shortly before 1 a.m., according to Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Chief Jim Miguel.

The fire was under control by 1:25 a.m., but not before damaging two units, he said. Four other units had smoke damage or had to have their roofs cut, according to Miguel. Damage was estimated around $100,000.

One resident was airlifted to a burn center for respiratory issues, second-degree burns to the face and third-degree burns to the hands, after trying to put out the fire, he said.

The Red Cross responded and assisted 11 people, all adults, who were displaced from eight units, Miguel said.

No other injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation but was considered accidental.
