Discovery Bay: Four displaced by 1-alarm house fire

DISCOVERY BAY — At least four people were displaced after a one-alarm fire engulfed a garage and attic at a home in Discovery Bay on Saturday, fire officials said Sunday.
Fire crews responded at 5:12 a.m. to reports of a fire at a home in the 3000 block of Lookout Point Loop, said Craig Auzenne, a battalion chief with the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District.
Firefighters arrived to find the blaze burning the garage, with flames reaching through the roof and threatening the neighboring home, he said.
A woman and three teenage children had already escaped by the time crews arrived, Auzenne said. They were sleeping when the fire broke out but were able to get out of the house unscathed. A neighbor and volunteers with the Red Cross responded to help the family, he said.
As of Sunday morning, fire investigators had not yet determined what caused the fire, but Auzenne said early evidence indicated it was electrical.
The fire consumed the garage, two cars, a motorcycle and most of the attic, he said. The rest of the house sustained water damage.
Firefighters were able to douse the blaze by about 6:15 a.m., Auzenne said. No injuries were reported.
