Oakland Fire Local 55

Oakland Firefighters responded to a two-alarm fire on the 1800 block of East 25th.

An aggressive fire attack by Engine 13 and Engine 4 on arrival with strong top side ventilation work by Truck 2 held the damage to six units of a 24 unit building.

Great work by all Oakland Fire Department companies on-scene.

No injuries, all tenants and firefighter crews out safely.
