Three people were displaced by a Saturday morning house fire in Emeryville according to local fire officials.
The blaze was reported about 6:30 a.m. at 1054 47th Street. When firefighters arrived they found the home engulfed in flames, Alameda County Fire Department spokeswoman Jo Leal said.
One person at the house was hospitalized after the fire, possibly for unrelated reasons, Leal said.
The one-alarm blaze was knocked down in about 30 minutes. The cause is under investigation. Embers from the fire drifted to a neighboring home, where they smoldered in an attic but didn’t catch fire.
Oakland Fire Department crews provided assistance to Alameda County firefighters in battling the blaze, Leal said.
The local Red Cross was contacted to assist the three displaced occupants.
