An apartment unit was seriously damaged after catching fire in Dublin on Monday morning, displacing a family and killing their pet dog, according to the Alameda County Fire Department.
The blaze broke out around 10:30 a.m. in a second-story unit in the Amador Lakes apartment complex on South Lake Drive, off Stagecoach Road in northern Dublin, according to ACFD.
"Upon arrival, flames were visible from the front window. Crews were able to knock down the fire and prevent extension to neighboring units," ACFD officials said on social media.
No residents or firefighters were injured during the fire, but the family's dog died as a result of smoke inhalation, according to ACFD. The unit sustained serious interior damage, displacing the two residents, and a Dublin city building official was called out to determine the status of the home going forward.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
