A resident of an apartment building was hospitalized after a two-alarm fire destroyed one unit Saturday morning, an Oakland Fire Department dispatcher said.

Firefighters responded to a three-story apartment complex at 122 E. 12th St. at about 2:30 a.m. and had the blaze controlled by about 2:50 a.m., the dispatcher said.

One resident was hospitalized with smoke inhalation injuries, and damage to the building was mostly confined to one unit, according to the fire department.
