3 injured, 1 with serious burns, in Daly City house fire

A house fire left three people injured, one with serious burns, in Daly City Tuesday afternoon, according to the North County Fire Authority.

Firefighters responded to a report of a structure fire in the 400 block of Evergreen Avenue at Peoria Street shortly after 3:30 p.m., fire officials said.

Arriving crews found heavy smoke and flames in the first floor of a two-story home, according to fire officials.

Fire crews initiated an aggressive fire attack and were able to extinguish the blaze, which did not spread to the second floor, fire officials said.

The blaze was extinguished at about 3:45 p.m., a San Mateo County fire dispatcher said.

Everyone in the home had evacuated themselves out of the structure before crews arrived, fire officials said.

One person in the home suffered serious burns to both arms and two others suffered from smoke inhalation, fire officials said.

The injured were transported to a hospital for treatment, according to fire officials.

The home sustained major fire and smoke damage that displaced six residents, who received assistance from the American Red Cross, officials said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
