SAN LEANDRO (CBS SF) — One cat died and two people were displaced after a two-alarm fire broke out at a San Leandro home Sunday morning, according to the Alameda County Fire Department.

The blaze was first reported around 7:15 a.m. at a home near Bella Vista Avenue and Lorraine Boulevard, fire officials said.

Upon arrival, firefighters found a heavy smoke and flames coming from the back of the house.

San Leandro police officers also responded and were able to evacuate two people from a nearby home as a precaution, according to fire officials.
