Firefighters put out a two-alarm blaze at a residence in
unincorporated Alameda County this afternoon, a fire spokeswoman said.
The fire was reported at 11:52 a.m. at 14853 Midland Road near
Ashland, just east of San Leandro and west of Lake Chabot Regional Park,
Alameda County fire spokeswoman Aisha Knowles said.
The vacant split-level three-story home was under construction
when the fire broke out, Knowles said.
The fire caused extensive damage to the home, and some exposure
damage to a neighboring home, she said.
Firefighters had the fire under control within about 30 minutes,
Knowles said. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
No injuries were reported.
