OAKLAND -- A man suffered minor burns on his head and was hospitalized Monday morning in a house fire just west of Interstate 580, a battalion chief said.

The one-alarm blaze at the home in the 3200 block of 35th Avenue near Suter Street gutted the home and left it uninhabitable, Oakland fire Battalion Chief Lisa Baker said. Crews arrived to find heavy flames and smoke coming from the house, she said, and the blaze spread quickly to the attic.

The home's resident told fire crews he woke up to the smell of smoke and ran out of the home. His injuries were not considered life-threatening. The house did not have a working smoke alarm, Baker said.

The fire started at 5:31 a.m. and was under control in 10 minutes, Baker said.
