One-Alarm House Fire on Biscay Place

The cause of the Thanksgiving Day fire appears to be unrelated to cooking, officials said.

Authorities are investigating the cause of a one-alarm fire at a two-story home on Biscay Place Thursday afternoon. 

According to the Alameda County Fire Department, the Thanksgiving Day fire does not appear to be cooking-related, and no one was seriously injured.

Emergency crews responded to the home on the 35500 block of Biscay Place and contained the fire within 20 minutes, said Alameda County Fire Department spokeswoman Aisha Knowles. 

There was only one person home at the time. The man was taken to a local hospital for an unknown medical concern, Knowles said.

Before firefighters arrived, a next-door neighbor attempted to extinguish the flames with a garden hose. He suffered minor injuries but declined medical treatment, Knowles said.

According to Knowles, the fire, which appears to have started in a bedroom, caused moderate to heavy smoke and fire damage throughout the house.

Though the fire was quickly contained, a neighboring home suffered minor damage as well.
