ALAMEDA COUNTY (CBS SF) — A two-alarm fire at an apartment complex in San Lorenzo that left more than a dozen people displaced Sunday night likely started as an electrical fire, fire officials said.

Firefighters responded at 5:27 p.m. to the blaze at the two-story Galway Terrace Apartments in the 800 block of Galway Drive, according to the Alameda County Fire Department.

Responding firefighters battled flames coming from the first and second floors and the attic, fire spokeswoman Aisha Knowles said.

Firefighters were able to knock down the blaze about 30 minutes after arriving.

There were no report of injuries.

At least 10 units sustained either fire or water damage.

The American Red Cross responded to the scene to help the displaced residents.
