CASTRO VALLEY -- A one-alarm house fire displaced a family of five Tuesday and caused about $50,000 in damage to the home, an Alameda County fire spokesman said.
No injuries were reported.
Firefighters responded to a 4:40 p.m. call for a report of a fire at the single-family home in the 20500 block of Wisteria Street, Battalion Chief Chip Anderson said Wednesday.
Firefighters had the blaze under control within about 15 minutes.
The fire started when a dryer in a laundry room caught fire, then spread to the nearby kitchen, Anderson said.
The blaze caused a minimum of $50,000 in damage and destroyed the laundry room and the kitchen, Anderson said.
The Red Cross is assisting the two adults and three children displaced by the fire, Anderson said.
