Apartment fire

A Hayward apartment building at Del Mar Avenue near the California State University East Bay campus was engulfed in flames early Sunday morning, at 1:33 a.m. Four apartment units-two upstairs and two downstairs-were on fire. According to a Hayward Fire Department official, the fire started in an upstairs unit. Two tenants who occupied the unit were able to exit the building but a third person had to be rescued by a fire suppression crew. All three tenants were transferred to the hospital suffering from burns and smoke inhalation. The fire was controlled at 1:45 a.m., ten minutes after firefighters arrived on the scene, and was fully extinguished at 1:53 a.m. According to the fire department, the origin of the blaze was located in the northwest corner of the living room in apartment four, but the cause is still undetermined.
