A Fremont man suffered burns to both hands in a two-alarm fire that destroyed one unit of a duplex where he lived, a battalion chief said today.

The man was pulled from the fire and transported to Washington Hospital with minor burns on both hands, Mulvihill said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation and the amount of damage made by the flames has not been determined.
