Firefighters have extinguished a two-alarm fire in Concord this morning that destroyed a home and displaced several neighboring residents, Contra Costa County Fire Protection District officials said.

The blaze broke out at a single-family home on Detroit Avenue around 6 a.m., according to fire personnel.

Crews had the fire under control around 7 a.m. Fire Marshal Robert Marshall said no residents of the home gutted in the fire were at home this morning, and no injuries were reported.

The blaze also damaged neighboring homes, displacing at least four people, Marshall said.

The American Red Cross was called to the scene to provide housing assistance for the displaced residents.

The home where the fire started is considered a total loss, the fire marshal said.

Fire investigators have not determined what caused the fire.

Single Family Home is a relative term on Detroit Ave.

Princess Park. Those are really nice townhomes. Glad that the family is safe but sorry about their loss. I’m sure they are hard working and this was biggest investment they have.

These are good, hard working people and nobody deserves this. What a nightmare. Insinuating anything other than that is straight up ignorant and asinine.

Its definitely Princess Park. I used to live there and it a great little townhouse community. I hope everyone will be ok

This is my neighbors house, my roommate said they made the whole complex evacuate. Glad it wasn’t my place, I was out camping for the weekend! Hope the residents are okay, so sad seeing a house fire and knowing they lost valuables :(

Omg this was so scary! I was who called the police & knocked on the neighbors doors. I was on my way to work. I’m glad everyone is ok & that I got there on time because that fire was spreading fast. I have pictures and a video if I’m able to I will post them later.

Poor couple? They are not even married.
People need to donate to the Red Cross to cover many other poor couples who have children and families to support. I am shocked they would take money from innocent bystanders. Will they collect insurance and all these profits? Greed is very evil!
