OAKLAND -- At least eight residents were displaced early Monday after a two-alarm fire damaged two West Oakland apartment buildings, officials said.
No injuries were reported.
The fire erupted about 2 a.m. Monday in a bedroom of a first-floor unit of a three-story apartment building in the 1200 block of 34th Street.
Batallion fire Chief Adrian Sheppard said the flames spread to a car parked in a carport outside the building, which ignited a fire that spread to an adjacent two-story fourplex.
All residents of the two buildings were able to get out on their own.
It took 28 firefighters until 2:40 a.m. to control the fires, officials said.
Officials said the cause of the initial fire has not been determined, but electrical and gas problems have been ruled out.
Officials said each building sustained at least $100,000 in damages.
Eight residents of the building where the fire started were displaced. No one in the adjacent building asked for housing assistance, officials said.
