EL SOBRANTE (KRON) — Contra Costa Fire extinguished a two-alarm fire at an apartment complex in El Sobrante Tuesday morning.
Firefighters responded to the fire at 380 Joan Vista Street at 3:38 a.m.
When firefighters arrived, they found heavy fire coming from an apartment inside a 6-unit building. The fire spread into at least two other apartment buildings, fire officials said.
14 people have been displaced after firefighters determined that four out of the five apartments are inhabitable.
Two people have been treated for smoke inhalation at the scene.
Fire officials said the fire started in the kitchen due to the stove top left on.
The fire caused an estimated $350,000 in damage.
The apartment unit where the fire started was completely destroyed. The blaze spread to two other units, which were significantly damaged. A fourth unit sustained water damage.
At least three of the 15 displaced residents accepted assistance from the American Red Cross.
