A two-alarm house fire damaged a vacant home in Alamo and left two firefighters with heat-related injuries this afternoon, a San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District spokeswoman said.

Neighbors called 911 to report the fire at the under-construction home at 87 Las Quebradas Lane around 1:05 p.m., fire district spokeswoman Kimberly French said.

Crews arriving on the scene saw a fire that appeared to have spread from the single-story home’s side yard to its attic area, French said.

Firefighters were able to get the blaze under control in about 30 minutes, she said.

Two firefighters suffered heat-related injuries and at least one was taken to a hospital for treatment, French said. Temperatures in Alamo at the time of the fire topped 100 degrees.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

When did Alamo become a part of Claycord? Sorry for the firefighters, though.

Well that has to suck. I hope they have a speedy recovery also.
