Six people were displaced in a two-alarm house fire near Redwood City early Sunday morning, a San Mateo County fire official said.
Firefighters responded to a report of a fire in the 2900 block of Crocker Avenue in the North Fair Oaks area around 5:50 a.m., Battalion Chief Jim Stevens said.
Crews found smoke and fire coming from the first floor of the home, and the fire was under control within 30 minutes of crews arriving on scene.
All six residents of the home had evacuated before firefighters arrived, Stevens said.
A man who lives in the home was transported to a hospital as a precaution. Other residents received assistance from family members.
The blaze appears to have started in a back bedroom that then spread to the rest of the structure, which sustained “extensive damage,” Stevens said.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
