A two-alarm fire at a Walnut Creek retirement community damaged at least one car Sunday evening, a Contra Costa County fire dispatcher said.

Firefighters responded to reports of a single-alarm fire in the 2600 block of Saklan Indian Drive, the dispatcher said.

The fire was upgraded to two alarms about 10 minutes later and contained before 7:20 p.m., according to the dispatcher.

The blaze was at Rossmoor retirement community condominiums and started in a wooden carport attached to a residence damaging at least one car, according to the dispatcher.

At least three residences were damaged but further details were not available, the dispatcher said.

Residents at the three units declined aid from the American Red Cross, according to the dispatcher.

No injuries were reported, the dispatcher said.

Perhaps a charger for a golf cart?

With all the fires in San Jose and the alarming amount that has been happening in Antioch and Oakley, we all might want to be extra careful.

Maybe the turn signal was left on and heated up.
