A resident and two police officers went to the hospital with smoke inhalation injuries after a fire at a home in Daly City early Tuesday morning, according to the North County Fire Authority.
Firefighters first responded at 4:40 a.m. to the home at 208 Los Olivos Ave., just east of the Daly City BART station.
Heavy smoke was coming from the two-story home and firefighters were told that people were still inside the home. Firefighters rescued a resident and a dog, with the resident treated at the scene for smoke inhalation before being transported to a hospital, fire officials said.
Two police officers who had tried to rescue the resident also suffered minor smoke inhalation and were taken to the hospital. No firefighters were injured and crews remained at the scene for nearly two hours to make sure the fire didn’t spark back up.
Two people were displaced by the fire and are receiving assistance from the American Red Cross, according to the fire authority, which serves Daly City, Brisbane and Pacifica.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
