Firefighters are battling a one-alarm house fire on Delaware Dr., just off Clayton Rd. in Concord.

No flames can be seen coming from the home, but the blaze is creating a large amount of smoke.

No injuries have been reported, and the cause is unknown at this time.

Delaware Dr. is currently closed from Clayton Rd. to Wilke Dr. Please use caution if you’re in the area.

Thanks to Cyndi for the pictures!

UPDATE: ConFire says the fire started in the kitchen and spread into the attic.

UPDATE: The fire has been extinguished.

OK how many of you have a dry chem fire extinguisher in the house?
An when you leave the stove on and go to another room do you set a timer in case you get distracted, as a reminder?

I have two in the kitchen and one in the garage.

I set timers all the time but then I go out in the backyard and burn the dinner because I can’t hear the timer going off from the backyard…..

Ok how many of you are still cooking food in wood framed buildings? This sort of thing will only keep happening…

Delaware is still blocked off at Clayton Road. There’s a PG&E truck present too.

I suspect that would be virtually everyone.

Sad when you see other people’s stuff burning. Good reminder to stay on top of smoke alarms, extinguishers and a having solid evac plan with no obstacles to rapid egress.

Only one in the kitchen but checked regularly to make sure it’s still charged.

Most cell phones have a timer use it

Thankfully the family is okay, only one member was present and he was able to get out in time. Looked like a large wooden object caught on fire via the stove. This is a reminder to us all to always be extra cautious in the kitchen.
