Apartment complex fire displaces 12 in San Ramon


No one was injured but two apartment units were destroyed and two others damaged Saturday night by a two-alarm blaze at the Bridges of San Ramon apartment complex, police and fire officials said.

Twelve people were displaced by the fire, which was first reported at about 8 p.m. tonight at the apartment complex about a quarter-mile south of City Hall and Bollinger Canyon Road, said Dan McNamara, a battalion chief with the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District. The flames appear to have started in a ground-floor unit, and spread to the second floor, prompting the second alarm.

A total of 29 firefighters responded, McNamara said, who took about an hour to put out the fire.

The American Red Cross was on scene tonight helping the 12 people who lost their homes. The cause of the fire was under investigation tonight, McNamara said, and there was no damage estimate Saturday night.
