One person injured in fire at Pleasant Hill senior apartments

One person was hospitalized with smoke inhalation and burn injuries after a fire at a senior living facility in Pleasant Hill on Thursday afternoon, a Contra Costa County Fire Protection District spokesman said.

The two-alarm fire was reported at 1:15 p.m. in an unoccupied unit at the Hookston Senior Apartments at 80 W. Hookston Road.

A male victim in an adjacent unit suffered injuries while trying to escape through a hallway and had to be injured from an apartment balcony, fire district spokesman Steve Hill said. He was taken to a hospital and an update on his condition was not immediately available.

Crews extinguished the fire by shortly before 2 p.m. and its cause is under investigation, Hill said.
