A two-alarm fire has displaced nine people in West Oakland Wednesday afternoon, fire officials said.
The fire was reported at 2:18 p.m. at Eighth and Campbell streets.
By 2:54 p.m., the fire was under control. No one was injured, according to fire officials. Two structures were damaged. One was a vacant single-family home and the other a duplex.
Michael Hunt, chief of staff of the fire department, said it’s unclear currently where the fire started because both properties were burning when firefighters arrived.
Three of the nine displaced are children, fire officials said. The American Red Cross will be assisting the displaced residents if they need help.
