Seven people were displaced from an independent living center following a fire Saturday afternoon in unincorporated Alameda County, county fire officials said.

The one-alarm fire was reported at 12:02 p.m. at 234 Sunset Blvd. near Hayward.

Residents evacuated the ABC-Lodge Residential Care Home before firefighters arrived and saw heavy smoke coming from the building.

Firefighters put out the fire in about 10 minutes. The cause is under investigation, county fire spokeswoman Aisha Knowles said.

No one was injured and the seven displaced adults, all men, are receiving help with temporary needs from the American Red Cross.
