Fire destroys 4 homes under construction in Dublin

DUBLIN, Calif. -- Four homes under construction were destroyed in a two-alarm fire in Dublin Monday night, according to the Alameda County Fire Department.

Fire crews responded to the fire in the area of Vinton Avenue and Kinsley Street shortly after 9 p.m., fire officials said.

Multiple reports were made of smoke and flames seen in an area where homes are under construction, fire officials said.

Firefighters arrived to find the fire on Sunset View Drive, Alameda County fire Division Chief Chip Anderson said.

Four homes that were in the framing stage of construction were fully involved in flames, he said.

The first arriving crew quickly called for a second-alarm response to make sure the blaze did not spread to neighboring homes that were completely built, Anderson said.

No one was inside the involved homes when firefighters arrived, according to Anderson.

Some embers were blown by the wind to a nearby hill sparking small spot fires that were quickly extinguished, Anderson said.

The blaze was under control around 9:45 p.m., he said.

No injuries were reported.

At least two of the four destroyed homes were two stories high, Anderson said.

Anderson did not know the name of the housing development where the fire took place.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
