Alameda firefighters quash home day care blaze
Alameda firefighters are investigating the cause of a blaze at a home day care Thursday afternoon. No one was injured in the fire.
Alameda Fire Capt. Matt Tunney said they received a call about the fire at Marva’s Home Day Care on the 2400 block of Lincoln Avenue at 3:15 p.m. Thursday. He said a tenant and seven children were in the home when the fire started in an upstairs bedroom, but that everyone escaped uninjured.
Tunney said the one-alarm fire caused an estimated $85,000 worth of damage to the home and its contents. The Oakland Fire Department backed up Alameda’s stations while Alameda firefighters handled the blaze.
