Two injured in early-morning apartment fire in San Ramon

SRVFPD: Occupant jumps from second-story window to escape blaze

Firefighters from the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District put out a blaze in an apartment building on Canyon Village Circle in San Ramon on Tuesday morning, saving two occupants in the process, according to SRVFPD battalion chief John Viera.

The blaze -- which was first reported at approximately 5:46 a.m. Tuesday on 2512 Canyon Village Circle, not far from the Diablo Plaza shopping center -- resulted in both occupants being hospitalized from injuries sustained from the fire, including one who was forced to jump from the second-story window to escape, according to Viera.

The fire itself was contained to one apartment on the complex’s second floor, and the approximately 30 firefighters who responded to the blaze were able to contain it by 6:30 a.m., Viera said.

The cause of the blaze is currently still under investigation.
